Being a teenager is stressful enough. You have to deal with peer pressure, social identity, physical appearance, and new bodily changes. Well that’s definitely the case for sixteen-year-old Kathy St. James. She is the middle child of domineering matriarch Letha St. James. To make matters worse she lives in conservative Wolf Colony, North Carolina where racism and bigotry rules with an iron fist. The only stability in her life are her younger sister Bossier, her boyfriend Algier Gentry and her best friend Tiffany DuPont. But she’s not the only one dealing with a difficult home life.
