The novel tracks the adolescent angst of the protagonist, Doreen Severna, who is comparable to the character Holden Caulfield from The Catcher in the Rye. The story takes place in Pasadena, California, the summer before Doreen's freshman year in high school.
Doreen is a fourteen-year-old outcast with only one friend, the equally marginalized Ted. The two share an intense love of music (mainly The Pixies) and knowledge of what it's like to be alienated.
The book is mentioned in The Pixies documentary loudQUIETloud.
