When Ruth returns home to the South for the summer after her
freshman year at college, a near tragedy pushes her to
uncover family truths and take a good look at the woman she
wants to become.
Growing up in Alabama, all Ruth Wasserman wanted was to be a
blond Baptist cheerleader. But as a curly-haired Jew with a
rampant sweet tooth and a smart mouth, this was an
impossible dream. Not helping the situation was her older
brother, Davidâ€”a soccer star whose good looks, smarts, and
popularity reigned at school and at home. College provided
an escape route and Ruth took it.
Now home for the summer, she's back lifeguarding and
coaching alongside David, and although the job is the same,
nothing else is. She's a prisoner of her low self-esteem and
unhealthy relationship with food, David is closed off and
distant in a way he's never been before, and their parents
are struggling with the reality of an empty nest. When a
near drowning happens on their watch, a storm of
repercussions forces Ruth and David to confront long-ignored
truths about their town, their family, and themselves.
