MELIE’S MOTHER IS sometimes nice, sometimes mean—prone to erratic behavior that Melie does her best to cope with. As a young girl, she invents rituals to protect herself from her mother’s moods. but as Melie becomes a teenager, the years of tiptoeing around her own home take their toll, and Melie sinks into increasing unhappiness. No one understands her situation.
No one understands that Melie is treated like a thorn in her mother’s side. Since Melie’s mother isn’t capable of change, it’s up to Melie to find the strength to break free.
