Jeanie is fourteen on the verge of fifteen. She is discovering herself in an electronic world which encourages her to divulge her secrets and walk the fine line between flirt and fit for school student.
She’s recently moved from North Carolina. It was a move preceded by a previous move from the family home in Minnesota. Having been uprooted, she’s desperately seeking to wrap her wandering roots someplace firm. Unfortunately, society bends and sends her search beyond herself to a boy. Specifically, a boyfriend.
She can easily imagine a large white wedding with flowers and rice. She is convinced that the fulfillment of this reverie would be pregnancy.
Self–exploration and personal development have little power within her longing. No one has reached out to her to explain the importance of individual empowerment.
It’s as if she is in an orthodox society which is not accepting of and intolerant to the actual female voice. This church is mobile. It’s on her cell phone, in her Facebook account, on her Twitter, and in the circle she constantly outlines.
