After her brother's death and father's disappearance, Alison's life has turned dark. She planned on taking the path of least resistance during her senior year, until a massive fight with her mother pushes her to run away to a group of radical environmentalists occupying a Washington State forest. In this stunning literary work, Jessica Blank uses the anti-establishment and radical mood of the 1990s to show a girl grappling to find the strength and courage to do what's right for the world and for herself.
