What Maisie Knew

During her parents' bitter divorce, young Maisie finds herself shuttled between her vain father and egotistical mother, who, constantly distracted and self-involved, value her only as a means for provoking each other. When both take lovers and remarry, Maisie - solitary, observant and wise beyond her years - is drawn into an increasingly entangled adult world of games and betrayal, until she is finally compelled to choose her own future.
