Keek's life "was" totally perfect .
Keek and her boyfriend just had their Worst Fight Ever; her best friend heinously betrayed her; her parents are divorcing; and her mom's across the country caring for her newborn cousin, who may or may not make it home from the hospital. To top it all off, Keek's got the plague. (Well, the chicken pox.) Now she's holed up at her grandmother's technologically barren house until further notice. Not quite the summer vacationKeek had in mind.
With only an old typewriter and Sylvia Plath's "The Bell Jar" for solace and guidance, Keek's alone with her swirling thoughts. But one thing's clear through her feverish haze she's got to figure out why things went wrong so she can make them right.
