Ginny has just moved to Sweet Creek Holler after the death of her dad. Sweet Creek Holler is in Appalachia where miners live from hand to mouth and everyone knows everything about everybody and if they don't, they make it up! Ginny's best friend, Lou Jean Purvis, is growing up faster than Ginny. Ginny becomes the victim of the town gossip and wonders how she'll survive the rumors and humiliation.
