"I have this pathetic disease. Never mind what it's called." Life doesn't play by the rules, so fourteen-year-old Ricky decides she won't either. Ricky's rules allow for cursing, cutting school, and lying to the Disaster-Formerly-Known-As-Her-Parents. That is, until her truancy is discovered and she's facing the threat of having to repeat ninth grade. It all makes her feel so angry...so cursed. Going back to school would be ten times worse if it weren't for a new friend - quirky/cute classmate Oliver, a childhood cancer survivor who understands what it's like to be sick. Ricky also discovers that her strict public speaking teacher, who has zero expectations of her, is a super-motivating force. There's nothing like proving someone wrong. The harder Ricky works, the more she wonders if school has something to teach her after all...What if she isn't cursed? What if going it alone isn't her only option?
