Etta is tired of dealing with all of the labels and categories that seem so important to everyone else in her small Nebraska hometown.Everywhere she turns, someone feels she s too fringe for the fringe Not gay enough for the Dykes, her ex clique, thanks to a recent relationship with a boy not tiny and white enough for ballet, her first passion and not sick enough to look anorexic partially thanks to recovery Etta doesn t fit anywhere until she meets Bianca, the straight, white, Christian, and seriously sick girl in Etta s therapy group Both girls are auditioning for Brentwood, a prestigious New York theater academy that is so not Nebraska Bianca seems like Etta s salvation, but how can Etta be saved by a girl who needs saving herself The latest powerful, original novel from Hannah Moskowitz is the story about living in and outside communities and stereotypes, and defining your own identity.
