Absolutely Maybe

Absolutely Maybe by Lisa Yee
Maybelline Mary Katherine Mary Ann Chestnut is named after two Miss Americas and her mother Chessy's favorite brand of mascara -- you can't blame her for choosing to go by Maybe instead! Maybe tries to act excited about her mom's seventh marriage but she has little hope that this one will last any longer than any of the others. When her creepy step-dad-to-be tries to rape her and her mother fails to earn any "Mother of the Year" awards in her support afterwards, Maybe decides to skip town entirely. More specifically, she decides it's time to find her bio dad in Hollywood. With few clues and hardly any money, the journey becomes about discovering much more than just her biological self.
