Seventeen-year-old Klee’s father was the center of his life. Until his death. Now, forced to live in the suburbs with his mom, Klee can’t help but feel he’s lost all the identifying parts of himself --- his beloved father, weekly trips to the MoMA and the energy of New York City. That is until he meets Sarah in art class. Suddenly it seems as if she’s the only thing that makes him happy. But when an act of betrayal sends him reeling, Klee lands in a psychiatric hospital for teens in Northhollow. While there, he undergoes intensive therapy and goes back over the pieces of his life to find out what was real, what wasn’t and whether he can stand on his own feet again.
