When four teenage girls decide to risk the enticing world of temptation and danger, they cannot predict how their behavior will change...and in some cases...destroy innocent lives.

Summertime is hot and dull in the Central Valley of California and four teenage girls from very different families are determined to spice it up.  With a single-mindedness that foretells disaster, they push aside all the rules and explore the underbelly of valley life.  Drugs, sex, alcohol, adventure, anything to challenge the norm, yet all experienced without the benefit of maturity.  As the girls become increasingly uncontrollable, their mothers--from dramatically diverse social classes---are forced to work together to save their daughters.  Like a tornado moving across the landscape, lives are wrenched from their foundations.

Page after page, and over a period of two years, the author introduces characters who struggle to support and defeat the dreams of what began as four innocent girls desiring to taste the forbidden fruit.  The book explores the lives of very diverse family systems, as well as the mechanism that drives a cross-section of an All-American community.
