At the age of 16, it’s standard procedure for every girl at Lynnie Russo’s posh Los Angeles prep school to get a car. So on her 16th birthday, Lynnie is startled when she opens the small gift box from her father—it doesn’t contain the shiny new set of keys she was expecting. Instead she finds a worn-out bird charm bracelet. What can he be thinking? When she cuts school to go try surfing so as to have a special day, instead of grounding her, her father hands her a manuscript box and says, "Your mother wanted you to have this when it seemed you were losing perspective. I think now’s the time."
Through "The Noah Confessions," Lynnie uncovers her family’s secrets, loves, and tragedies, and comes to recognize that their past may not necessarily determine her future.
