Marle and Rosanna are not best friends. Actually, they barely know each other. But, over the course of one evening in Rosanna’s attic bedroom, they’ll forge a bond in the flame of Rosanna’s very big problem: going to court to testify in her own custody hearing. This is a story about two very ordinary, weird girls just dealing with how incredibly ordinary and weird it is to be thirteen.
