Breakups. Family secrets. Stumbling toward independence.
A riveting and humorous exploration of love, secrets, and sisterhood, It’s Not My Favorite is the poignant story of two sisters who discover they must confront their past, let go of their religious guilt, and summon everything in their power to escape their arrested development.
Gwenn Hutchinson runs The Organizer by day and bails her little sister out of emotional quicksand by night. Between that distraction and the full-time job of creating a vivid fantasy life for herself, she can almost drown out her mother’s post-divorce ranting, “I’ve always had a man to take care of me, Gwendolyn. You’re not gettin’ any younger, you know.”
Rachel Hutchinson, bakes away her anxiety while avoiding a painful breakup with her secret girlfriend. The only people who don’t know this “girlfriend” secret are her judgmental parents, Pastor Ed and Shirley.
Just when it seems things can’t get worse, Gwenn finds a pack of old photographs that may uncover a family secret. Will these pictures lead to the truth, or bring them face-to-face with the reality they’ve worked so hard to avoid?
