One woman’s gut-wrenching struggle to cope with the expectations and turmoil of coming of age.

From feeling lost in the hallways of a suburban Chicago high school, to hallucinating on a bedroom floor in West Philadelphia, to giving advice to a stranger in a Manhattan deli, Rothstein empowers herself beyond self-doubt, letting go of shame, and embracing her inner core.
