Eternally pessimistic 16-year-old Dylan assesses the world and finds it terribly lacking. She despairs over the environment, winces at the behavior of her too-young mother, and resents the intrusion of her best friend’s boyfriend. At the core of her bleak outlook is the knowledge that her father, aka the “sperm donor,” has never tried to contact her. And then he calls. The tension this creates between Dylan and her mother is brutal and realistic. Dylan has found emotional safety in keeping distant from others, judging before she can be judged. As Dylan comes out of her shell, she realizes her own power and responsibility in setting the terms of her relationships
