After discovering at age eleven that she was "smarter" than her mom, freshman Jen Morris has since been trying to find balance in her life. Between high school, her complicated mother, the school play, drifting friendships, and the boring church that her mom makes her attend, Jen feels like she is inadequately equipped for her life. When her most embarrassing moment happens in front of the whole school, a devastated Jen questions her existence.
In the following days, Jen deals with ridicule and family, doubt and faith, the humiliation of YouTube infamy, hope, and the distancing of people close to her. Deeper acceptance of her own family, faith, and circumstances lead her to become empowered to not just focus on her own issues but to the needs of others as well.
