Plot Summary

  • After the death of her grandmother, high school junior Lindsay Weir, up to now the perfect student, discovers existential rebellion, at least a bit. She wears her dad's old jacket, refuses to join the academic decathlon team, and starts hanging around the school freaks. She remains good hearted and stands up to some boys teasing a mentally-challenged student, but when that goes awry and she's caught cutting class with one of the freaks, she mopes. Meanwhile, her freshman brother Sam, one of several school geeks, is being picked on mercilessly by Alan. Can Sam convince his friends to face the bully with him? The homecoming dance brings some resolution.
