Tracy Forrester has been dragged to a big, rambly, slightly musty-smelling house on Cape Cod for a retreat for divorced parents and their kids. Farnsworth House, with its organized field trips, communal meals, and shared chores, isn't exactly Tracy's top choice for summer vacation. For friend potential, there's only Beka, the Angry Girl from New York, who spends most of her time plugged into her Walkman, listening to punk music, or Kelsey, a pretty California girl who seems impossibly cheerful. Over the course of her stay at the Hippie Hotel, Tracy faces her insecurities and defensiveness and begins to gain some of the confidence she thinks only other people have.
