Sixteen-year-old Heavenly Faith Simms is slowly suffocating in the small town in which she grew up. Abandoned by her mother and raised by her loving but religiously zealous grandmother, HF has never felt like she belonged anywhere so when she finds her mother's address in a drawer, she is determined to start a new life in Florida with the mother she has never known. She and her best friend, Bo, an emotionally repressed gay boy, hit the road and head south and both awake to the realisation that there is a life awaiting them that is very different to what they have known.
