Abstract:

The year is 1955. Isolated at school by her intelligence and disfigurement, troubled at home by the undercurrents in her parents' marriage, 14-year-old Achsa McEachern seeks solace in the tunes and rhythms on her radio. After hearing a record by an unknown 20-year-old country songer named Elvis Presley, she fires off a deceptively self-assured fan letter, telling him he is going to be a star. Insecure in the world he is tentering and burning with a desire to succeed, Elvis answers her and enlists her to teach him how to "talk good."
