Greta Driscoll is about to turn 15 and can't bear to leave her childhood behind. To celebrate her parents throw her a birthday party that becomes increasingly ludicrous.
The world is closing in on Greta Driscoll. On the cusp of turning 15 she can’t bear to leave her childhood; it contains all the things that give her comfort in this incomprehensible world. She floats in a bubble of loserdom with her only friend Elliott, until her parents throw a surprise 15th birthday party and she’s flung into a parallel place; a world that’s hysterically funny, a little violent and thoroughly ludicrous.
