Life is tough for fifteen-year-old computer nerd Olivia Best. Her twin sister Melanie, once Olivia's best friend, has taken to drinking and self-harming. Together with her trusted ally, a green toy frog, Olivia attempts to navigate the stormy seas of her existence and finds True Love with fellow computer whiz, Bad Breath Bevin. "Hilarious!"
