Seventeen-year-old Lauren is a closet poet trying to keep her messy family together. She juggles responsibility for her two younger sisters and her bipolar mother. When her allegedly now sober father wants back into their lives to reconnect, everything spins out of control and Lauren’s writing is her only escape.
Just a Girl in the Whirl is about family, forgiveness and being bold enough to create your own life, your own way.
