Als Kate klein war, erlitt sie eine schwere Brandverletzung und ihre Mutter verschwand, an die näheren Umstände kann sich der Teenager nicht mehr erinnern. Ihre Erziehung liegt ganz in den Händen des liebevoll-strengen Vaters, einem obskuren Prediger, den Kate anbetet, dessen zweifelhafte Weisheiten und Prinzipien sie förmlich aufsaugt. Sie ist 'das glücklichste Mädchen auf Erden' - oder? Aus der eingeschränkten, voreingenommenen Sichtweise von Kate, die den Leser direkt anspricht, erleben wir mit, wie sie unbewusst versucht, ihrem Vater nachzueifern, wie sie ihre Freundinnen manipuliert und gegeneinander ausspielt, stets darauf bedacht, selbst im Mittelpunkt zu stehen und alles unter Kontrolle zu halten. Doch allmählich regen sich in ihr leise Zweifel an der Unfehlbarkeit ihres geliebten Dad, und als schließlich die Erinnerung an die Mutter zurückkehrt, muss Kate eine schreckliche Wahrheit erkennen
