The Dickson family is not one that many people look up to, with a deadbeat dad, a mother who is not always sober and Bo, a daughter who is gossiped about 24/7. The Dicksons have been called thieves, addicts, and are certainly the talk of the town at all town. Agnes Atwood has never been on a date, never stayed out past ten and never broken any of her parent's protective rules. But when a friend strong friendship forms between the two girls, Agnes finds herself sneaking out and drinking. When Bo calls Agnes in the middle of the night to run away forever, Agnes has to make a life-changing decision.
