Morgaine is a clutz, a dramatist, and above all, a dreamer. Her goals for the 11th grade are simple: land the leading role in the annual school play and win the affection of Peter Barrie, the new Aussie heart throb. But when things fail to go as planned, Morgaine's carefully designed mask of dreams and fantasies begin to crack. Reality seeps in. Suppressed truths about her life rush to the surface and she has no choice but to confront them. As the boundaries between fact and fiction begin to blur, Morgaine must determine if she has the strength to live her life in a whole new way. Can she be the heroine she needs?
