Sixteen-year-old Ari is fat, ugly and unlovable. At least that’s what she thinks. Ari’s father walked out when she was twelve, leaving her mother, Margaret, emotionally unavailable. When Ari was fifteen, she was raped; and since has developed depression, anxiety, and an obsession with death and suicide. Sarah is Ari’s cousin and only real friend, and though still a teenager, she could easily pass for twenty-five—which she often did, before she was arrested for selling drugs. Newly released from jail, Sarah struggles to adjust to legal weed and reconnecting with her cousin. But old habits die hard, and when Ari’s mother is out of town, Sarah sees an opportunity to unload a bunch of E by bullying Ari into having a party. That night sets off a chain of events that exposes secrets, lies, and thought-to-be buried truths as Ari and Sarah embark on a drug-fueled, hormone-driven, chain-smoking journey of self-discovery, enlightenment, and revenge.
