Abstract:

Taking a job as an assistant to an eccentric dental surgeon, eighteen-year-old Lizzie pursues a fantasy relationship with her crush before realizing that he is not quite as imagined.

Lizzie Vogel lands a job in a local dentist's office after answering a classified ad. The job comes with an apartment of her own, as well as an eccentric boss, a high-strung coworker, and the occasional call to perform light dentistry herself. It also provides Lizzie with an introduction to Andy Nicolello: handsome, kind, slightly indifferent. Lizzie begins calling him her boyfriendeven though they have never so much as kissed or sat next to each other on the sofa. Navigating the new waters of adult life (conquering homesickness, learning to drive, hosting a dinner party, making bold-or tragic, depending on the viewer-fashion choices), Lizzie arrives at an unexpected, and unexpectedly moving, destination. -- adapted from jacket
