War affects everyone, even those not fighting in it. This has never been truer than during the Vietnam War, a time where new generations began questioning the ethics and motives behind war and began challenging those in authority. Living during this chaotic time is seventeen-year-old Rachel Morelli. She has grown up near Kent State University, where her father teaches, and she knows the campus like the back of her hand. The only problem is she has no desire to spend the rest of her life there. She has dreams of attending Pratt University in New York and taking its top-notch art program.
