<B>And that's final</B> She never imagined she'd drive a minivan. Or have a turn-into-her-mother moment when she refuses her daughter a tattoo. Or have a relationship with a gay friend that is more loving and enduring than her own marriage. Yet it is Michael Angelo at Lily Waters' side as she gives birth, while her soon-to-be-ex-husband, dubbed Spawn of Satan, is busily spawning with another woman. Lily confronts all that and more with indomitable, earnest determination in Erica Orloff's <B>Do They Wear High Heels in Heaven?</B> When Lily learns she has stage four breast cancer, she takes on the challenge of finding a love match for Michael, so he can give her children a family when she's gone. And even as Michael falls seriously in love for the first time, with George, he cares for Lily with tenderness. Orloff has written an unforgettable celebration of true love between friends and family with compassion, cheekiness and oh-so-much-heart.
