MEET:

Joyce, the foul-mouthed and wildly successful curator of a controversial art exhibit on surveillance, who unexpectedly finds herself under surveillance--in her own bedroom.

Her best friend, Bobbie, a gynecologist--driven, poised, and in control--a woman who finally finds love at fiftysomething and watches, horrified, as her perfectly ordered world crumbles around her.

Bobbie's patient, Lisa, a former juvenile offender and habitual runaway, who once dreamed of fame working as Joyce's gallery assistant and is now struggling with her new identity as a banker's wife and doting mother.
Lisa's sister, Lynne, a middle-aged suburban mother whose penchant for home decorating conceals her troubled marriage and blinding desire to exact revenge for a childhood injustice.

Jordan, Lynne's sixteen-year-old daughter, a former straight-A student and aspiring model who, no longer fitting in at school or at home, takes a part-time job at a supermarket to spite her mother--and finds a close confidant in her thirtyyear-old male boss.
