Two teenage girls—Antonia and Jazz—fall into peer counseling and hate it due to their apparent differences. Antonia is clean cut and takes care of her family. Her mother is so depressed after Antonia’s father abandons them that she is unable to get out of bed. Antonia thus takes care of her two younger brothers and deals with her advanced schoolwork as well. Jazz is seen as Antonia as a punk, someone not worth sharing space with. After learning more about her, Antonia discovers that Jazz is from an extremely wealthy family and has a mother that pushes for greatness. They slowly work to get past their visible differences and talk to each other so that they can work out their problems. A classic “don’t judge a book by its cover” story. Themes of family and identity.
