After her parents' divorce, city girl Lori Palmer has been dragged across the country to start a new life without her dad. Lori is the new girl at Bay Water High, where students prize glossy hair, beach bodies and thigh gaps above all else. All of the things that are so not her -- at her old school she was praised for her artistic talent, not her smoothie recipes. She plans to blend into the background. But, after a chance connection, Lori finds herself hanging out with Jake, the most popular (and hottest) guy at school. And Lori is suddenly thrust into his unfamiliar and exhilarating world of water polo, parties and stargazing. As Lori's old anxieties begin to resurface, she has to find a new artistic release and unknowingly ignites a powerful movement -- one that causes big problems. When the authorities start asking questions, Lori realizes that finding her voice might have got her in a world of trouble. Soon, Lori has to decide if she can finally stand up for what she believes in.
