"Cass was a young, promising playwright, once heralded as a fierce new queer voice in female empowerment. Now, however, following a scandal that forced her abrupt exit from the New York theatre world, she's hiding out in Los Angeles, reeling from her public humiliation, incessantly calling her former agent's assistant in the hopes that she'll put her through, and spying on her next door neighbor, who seems to have a steady stream of mysterious visitors coming in and out of her house at all times. Finally she meets her charismatic neighbor, Corrinne, a successful experimental documentary filmmaker, and discovers that the intimidatingly cool, wise-beyond-their-years pack of teenage girls who spend time at Corrinne's house are the subjects of her next fascinating project, for which Corrinne enlists Cass's help. "Why not?" thinks Cass. It's not like she's doing anything else, and perhaps this film could provide the opportunity to shed her embarrassment and rediscover her place in the spotlight. But as she is pulled deeper into Corrinne and the girls' orbit and the line between art and reality begins to blur, Cass must confront how far she is willing to go for success--and whether or not she can live with the person she would have to become"-- Provided by publisher.
