Summer, 1999. Long Island, New York. Bored and restless, Ali walks into the local Stop & Shop. Justine, the cashier, has a dazzling mischief in her smile. Ali applies for a job on the spot, and Justine teacher her how to bag groceries, what foods to eat (and not eat), how to shoplift, who to admire, and who she can become outside of her cold home. Ali become fixated on Justine, reshaping herself in her new idol's image, leading to events that spiral from superficial to seismic. -- adapted from back cover.
