Nick is the only person who seems to understand her, and the two of them start to build a close friendship. But as Nick starts to come out of his shell, they start to face the challenges of growing up in a small town where everyone seems to be content with the way things are. Dory and Nick must learn to deal with the prejudices and judgment that they face, and find their own kind of town.; 8vo; 374 pages.
