"I HEARD ABOUT YOUR MOTHER...I'M SORRY.
I GUESS, WELCOME TO THE CLUB."
"CLUB? WHAT CLUB?
"YOU KNOW, THE CLUB FOR GIRLS WITH 'PROBLEMS,' GIRLS WITH A STORY."
"I DON'T HAVE PROBLEMS. OR A STORY."
Tehilla Rabinson, a confident, popular twelfth-grader at Tichon Beis Yisrael of Deerfield, has it all: a great group of friends, a wonderful family, and a bright future. Until, one day, everything changes. On the outside, Tehilla remains the same-perfectly composed, perfectly in control, perfectly perfect. But inside, beneath her flawless exterior, Tehilla is falling apart, and there is no one who can help her.
Chani Grossberg, a quiet, timid tenth-grader, doesn't know what hit her. One day she was secure in the loyalty of her best friend, contentedly living in her shadow. The next day, she was all alone.
Though they traverse the same school hallways, Tehilla's and Chani's paths do not often intersect. But then they are unexpectedly brought together, beginning a journey of growth and self-discovery in which they both learn that survival depends on reaching out and reaching within, fighting the current and riding the waves.
