The Queen ladies sure are a motley crew in The Truth About Forever. Between Macy, Caroline, and Deborah, we've got a whole slew of attitudes, personalities, and coping strategies. But what's family if not complicated, right? As much tension as there is among these ladies, the Queens are proof that family can make or break you. Oh, and don't forget: the Queens aren't the only family in the novel, either. Catering is a family business, y'all.
If Deborah had been more affectionate towards Macy, her problems never would have progressed so far.
Caroline should have left Macy and her mom alone to learn to deal by themselves—it would have been less painful.
