The Hawthornes have it all. Great jobs, a beautiful house in northern California, and three charming daughters with perfect teeth. And then comes the eldest's senior year of high school. Angela is a straight A student and star athlete with her sights set on Harvard. Except she's suddenly losing her edge. Mother Nora is stretched to the limit between her family and her real-estate career. Then a few ill-advised moves put the Hawthorne family on a heedless collision and course that's equal parts achingly real and delightfully screwball.
