How do you walk away from a highly functional relationship and a perfectly good guy? How do you pledge fidelity to your soul and agree to blow up your life simultaneously? In her memoir "Rock Paper Scissors: Scenes from a Charmed Divorce," Cathia Friou takes readers through an intimate series of vignettes from her marriage, separation, divorce, co-parenting, and re-entry into the dating world. Each chapter stands alone as a piece of clarity, as an appreciation for the good, the bad, and sometimes the absurdity of life. Together, these pieces offer readers hope that a family can remain whole and beautiful despite divorce. Sometimes divorce happens. Sometimes it's not the end.

Praise For…

Friou attempts to answer that unanswerable question: is there any such thing as a good divorce? With gut-clenching honesty, she tells the story of a marriage that—at least on paper—should have worked and provides snapshot-style glimpses of a family’s rise, fall, and ultimate redemption. ALTERNATELY EDGY AND GENTLE, HEARTBREAKING AND FUNNY, THIS IS A TALE FOR OUR TIMES.
– Kim Wright, author of Last Ride to Graceland
