As five teenagers struggle to make their way, they’ll learn they’re not alone. They couldn’t be more different — a boy who carries a shovel wherever he goes, a girl who sells pot and works at Arby’s, a boy whose father is dying of cancer, a girl who’s ringmaster of her own flea circus, and a girl who is like a ghost flitting through all of their lives. Their stories are all different, but the roots run deep and intersect. The teens will just have to dig a little to find out how. Your teens will be astonished by this powerful and poignant look at family and the way trauma is passed down, as they see these teens deal with abuse, prejudice, white privilege, and loneliness.
