Laurel would do anything to turn back time - to tell her mother and grandmother not to stay home near the beach with a hurricane coming
to say no when her boyfriend, T-Boom, the co-captain of the basketball team, offers her that first hit of moon -the drug that makes her feel bigger than all she’s lost

But she can’t.
All she can do is move forward now. And only she can decide whether to face the pain and joy that is a part of living, or follow the moon to numbness and probably death. Only she can decide to choose to be there for her family and friends - or give them another thing to grieve.
Kaylee says, “Write an elegy to the past... and move on.” She says it’s all about moving on....
