This is the story of two teenage girls, a pair of sisters named Jean and Liz, who have the same mother but different fathers. The story takes place in 1970 and follows Jean, who is called Bean, and Liz as they try to fend for themselves after their mother has a mental breakdown. They decide to take the bus across the country to visit their uncle while their mother is away. A coming of age story with a twist. Follow these girls as they learn their true past in a small town in Virginia.
