On her 16th birthday, Catherine is given a Discman, the book Christiane F…. and permission to go to the mall. It’s also the day her father crashes her mother’s Jeep. Catherine is going through adolescence just as her parents are starting on the road to divorce. She doesn’t care. She’s too busy dealing with a girl at school, who terrorizes her. Catherine climbs the social ladder by stealing Mélanie’s boyfriend. From one misadventure to the next, she’s growing up in the violent chaos of the 1990s teen grunge scene.
