Sherry Wickman finds herself unemployed, overwhelmed, and back at home after earning her master’s degree in art therapy. When Sherry gets hired as a substitute art teacher, things begin to brighten up.

Our girl Wendy Burger stands on the edge of a summer that will change her life forever. It’s the summer she moves out of her father’s house (and into the UPS truck). The summer she starts a theatre with the guy she used to date (no one else would have them). The summer she performs her first acting role (Lisa in Hamlet—with a flickering blue light playing the lead, à la Tinkerbell). The summer when she gets tips from the actress, Floating Piñata Head. But most of all it’s the summer when she meets O Vixen My Vixen (yes, that’s her full name!) who is both beautiful and oh-so-deep. It’s the summer that changes everything in Wendy’s life.
