When she was five years old, Elmur ( Laura Murphy) wanted to be the pretty Indian Princess in the school play, Instead, she was given the part of a cowboy named Rag-time Joe. It was genetic that the teacher saw her as rootin-tootin. Her mother too, who wanted different.  Living with her grandmother, Elmur figures her genetic makeup has disadvantaged her. 
So on the day, Stepping Away from I'ness, Elmur wants to try out some new genes, those of the uber popular Mary Margaret Miller.  On that day, freshmen from selected high schools throughout the world will be injected with someone else's genes, to see life from someone else's point of view.
Instead of getting Mary Margaret, Mary Margaret gets Elmur.  As Elmur's nemesis and personal bully, MMM goes into, "anaphylactic shock."  Now knowing Laura better than she ever did, she has plenty of ammo.  She steals Laura's tell-all diary and starts to bring it to life with page one; burn down the Blue Water Haven subdivision sign. Now the cops are after Elmur.  To get the diary back, Laura has to go out and find herself.
Other students join her to help her battle Mary Margaret, other injected students, and the cops to get back the evidence the diary has become.
