Landing a prestigious summer internship on a  Pulitzer Prizewinning newspaper seems ideal for Chris,  who's glad to be taken seriously as a writer and  to get away from his blue-collar father's  expectations.

For Vicki, it's a chance to  grow up, shine in the big time, and maybe even get  a scholarship so she won't end up stuck in a  dead-end job like her mother.

For  Elizabeth, it means time to distance herself from the  suffocating relationship she has with her  boyfriend.

For Faith, it's a way to  forget the past and try to be just a normal  teenager.

Weeks of work and play wear on their  relationships: What do they expect of each other?  What do they expect of themselves?

From the Paperback edition.
