The war is over, but for
thirteen-year-old Rachel, the battle has just begun. Putting
childhood behind her, she knows what she wants - to prove she has
acting talent worthy of the school drama club, and what she
doesn''t want - to romantically fall for someone completely
inappropriate. Worries about her veteran brother''s failing health
and repugnance at her mother''s unexpected and unwanted pregnancy
drive her to seek solace from a seemingly sympathetic, but
self-serving teacher. The lies she tells herself hoping to reach
solutions to the problems complicating her life merely function to
make matters worse. Ultimately, she finds a way to come to terms
with life as it reaches an end and life as it begins.
