Kate is a character many teenage girls will relate to. Her best friend has found a new clique to hang out with, her parents are fighting, her brother is annoying, and the boy she likes is confusing. Kate's father, going through a mid-life crisis, quits his job to sell vitamins at the mall. Kate is forced to work with him and endure the scorn and pity of her classmates who pass by the vitamin booth. To make things more confusing, Will, the hottest boy in school, won't leave Kate alone. Elizabeth Scott captures the confusing high school culture without being too angsty.
