Twenty years after her mother's death, Loli Greene is hired by a nearly bankrupt theater to travel across the United States and teach tired, toxic teenagers to tap into their creative unconscious so that they might better understand both their ancestor's world and their own. During her travails, Loli uncovers secrets about her past that change her troublesome present into what may become a perfect future. While teaching in a town in the Midwest, she meets a mother and daughter whose lives she transforms and whose love, in turn, transforms her. In an occasionally raunchy, always entertaining novel, this uplifting work follows a woman who finally figures out how to navigate and take control of her life.
