Everyone has baggage; it’s just a matter of how they carry it. A novel about change, insecurities and honesty, both with oneself and with other people, Just Pretend ventures to ask what is important in life and what one does to preserve that...even from oneself. Steve Reine has had a long, successful acting career of pretending to be other people. But what he hides from everyone is a low self-esteem resulting from having been abandoned by both of his parents. Steve’s wife Siddah has built her life around him under false presumption that her dedicated attention could change him. But when Steve starts to fall apart and his hidden traits are revealed, she has to ask herself what is important in life. She refuses to keep pretending no matter how closely watched she is by the press. Can broken people become the heroes of their own lives?
