A smart, rueful and dead-on portrait of life's unending quest to fit in ... and the girl who solves it by completely breaking out. Esther Blueburger's quest begins when she escapes from her own Bat Mitzvah party and is befriended by Sunni, the effortlessly cool girl who is everything Esther thinks she wants to be. With the help of Sunni, Esther goes AWOL from her ordinary life and leaves her malfunctioning Jewish family to hang out with Sunni's far breezier and super-hip single mum Mary, and attend Sunni's forbidden public school as a Swedish exchange student.
