Sixteen-year-old Tamrika Fuller is happy with her life. With good friends and good grades, she's content to keep her options open for her future. But when her parents reveal they've been saving for several years to send her to their Alma Mater for her final years of high school - an old-fashioned boarding academy miles from her home in Vancouver - she's thrown out of her comfort zone. With no friends and a taciturn new roommate, Tammy feels un-moored and deeply out of place. What's more, her new school is heavily science-focused, with little to no thought for arts students. In an attempt to take control of her life and make something positive happen, Tammy starts an art club, while new relationships make her ask what it is she really wants out of life - and how to make it happen.
