Fourteen-year-old Doreen is an outcast at school and home and finds solace in her fierce love of music and in her best friend, Ted. When her older sister begins dating a bewildering 21-year-old named Matthew, Doreen must confront feelings she never knew she had. Doreen ultimately impels her troubled family to forge a new understanding of the world--and of one another.
