High-school senior and notorious wallflower Hawkins finally works up the courage to remove her mascot mask and ask out her longtime crush: Regina Moreno, head cheerleader, academic overachiever, and all-around popular girl. There's only one teensy little problem: Regina is already dating Chloe Kitagawa, athletic all-star...and middling English student. Regina sees a perfectly self-serving opportunity here, and asks the smitten Hawkins to tutor Chloe free of charge, knowing Hawkins will do anything to get closer to her.

Dr. Turner deals with an array of difficult cases including a former soldier involved in nuclear test explosion. Meanwhile, Sister Monica Joan experiences a crisis of faith, and Sister Frances realizes she needs to be a little less spiritual if she's to really connect with the local women.

It is an intense study of a violent world far from media scrutiny--where land grabs make developers billions, and politicians are bought and sold by the world's largest oil and lumber corporations.

It is the best and worst of America seen through the eyes of a family that represents both.
