Maxine Phillips is a walking oxymoron. She'd rather spend her Saturday nights reading comic books and eating burritos than going on dates like other eighteen-year-olds. She hasn't been to church or even attempted to pray in the last three years, yet her best friend, Deke, is a devout Christian. And while Deke claims her caramel complexion, wild cherry-brown hair, and gray eyes make her look exotic, she thinks she looks like a freak of nature. Maxine's life gets even stranger when she learns the father she thought dead is alive, and that her mother has been lying about his death for all of Maxine's life. On impulse, Maxine decides to drive from her hometown in South Carolina to the small town in Oklahoma where her father lives. In typical Maxine fashion, she leaves without her mother's permission, and when her car breaks down en route, she convinces Deke to pick her up and take her the rest of the way. Maxine arrives in Oklahoma, expecting Jack Phillips to be the father of her dreams. Instead, she finds that her father, among other things, is a white ex-convict. Upon learning the truth about him, Maxine does the only thing she can do.
