Everybody Rise (Large Print / Hardcover)
September 2015 Indie Next List
“In her debut novel, Clifford deftly updates The House of Mirth to show that belonging to the social elite is still not for the faint of heart. Evelyn Beegan has grown up on the fringes of high society, but now a new job at an exclusive social networking website may be her ticket to the lush life. Just as Wharton's Lily Bart learns the hard way, fitting in with the 'who's who' takes some shrewd negotiation. Is it worth the compromise just to prove you're worthy to be 'somebody'? Clifford's characters are complex and the choices they make follow intriguing paths in this engaging and moving story.”
