Subject: Lou Connor, a gifted, unhappy sixteen-year-old, is desperate to escape her life of poverty in Sydney. But when she travels to the United States as an exchange student, things go terribly wrong. This is the story of Lou's struggle for survival in the rich home of her strange host-family, and every detail is observed with dark humour and a defiance that veils Lou's longing for acceptance.
