After being severely mauled by a grizzly bear in the Rocky Mountains, seventeen-year-old Abby Hughes's facial disfigurement sends young children screaming into their mothers' arms. Returning to high school, that most intensely judgmental of places, Abby is forced to combat rejection, bullying and betrayal. In order to accept herself and ask others to do the same, she too must learn to dig below the surface to see people for who they really are. Her love of acting and her return to drama class may be the key, or it may be the disaster that drives her from high school (and society) altogether.
