You're strange and wrong. You've known it from the beginning.

This is the voice that rings in your ears. Because you never say the right thing.

You're a disappointment to everyone. You're a far cry from beautiful - and your thoughts are ugly too.

You seem bound to fail, bound to break.

But you know what it is to laugh with your best friend, to feel the first tentative tingles of attraction, to take exquisite pleasure in the affront of your unruly body.

You just need to find your place.

From dead pets and crashed cars to family traumas and misguided love affairs, Susannah Dickey's revitalizing debut novel plunges us into the private world of one young woman as she navigates her rocky way to adulthood.
