Lily is a teenage girl who lost her beloved stepfather three years ago, which left her with just her passive mother. Her real father doesn't live too far away, but Lily is worried about his baby-blue stockings and bejeweled anklet. Add in the insecurity of her first year of high school, an old best friend who isn't the way she used to be and worse still -- a brother-in-law who is battering her sister. As if that's not enough to deal with, her mother gets a loser boyfriend. When Lily takes part in the school musical life seems to get a little bit better, but things from her past threaten her future.
This book shows you how to help yourself when you have huge problems. It teaches you that sometimes you have to be your own hero and stop depending on others -- sometimes the only person who can help is yourself.
