It’s about Lauren’s life, after she was given a homework to send a letter to a dead person and she ended up writing to many dead celebrities, telling them how her life went. She has struggles on having friends at school, not thinking about how her sister, May, died and keeping up with her Mom (who moved to California). her dad (who stayed with her) and her Aunt Amy (who takes care of her every once in a while.
Her friends are Natalie and Hannah, Tristan and Kristen and later on, Sky, whom she liked and became her first boyfriend.
Natalie and Hannah are lovers. They pretended to be just friends and no one suspected because Hannah has many boyfriends. They got busted when Lauren took some pills, nearly got raped by Evan and opened a bathroom door that revealed Natalie and Hannah kissing.
May died because she was upset and guilty. She brings the young Lauren along while she dates and she found out that his boyfriend’s friend harasses Lauren. That night, she pretended to be a fairy, she was already drunk, then she fell on the river.
