Eleven-year-old Lily is new in the neighborhood. Her body is changing and she is starting to think about romance. When her mother, Nicole, drags her to the pool in a new bikini, all of Lily's worries are realized. Unfortunately, Lily has more to fear than just puberty and boys. Pushed by the subtle pressure of her mother and friends, Lily will find herself trapped in the situation she most wanted to avoid.
