Plot:
Mia, sixteen, is growing up in a small, dull town, with a mom who would do anything to force her into taking a job. Her father is absent, although he does occasionally appear and fill her head with empty promises and dreams of a better future. Through a period rife with disappointment - over school, choosing an occupation, parents, friend and boyfriends - Mia needs to realise on her own which path to choose for herself and who she can count on in life. Her search for answers, which ultimately leads to surprising discoveries, will also prove a great read for those who left their teenage years behind long ago.
