Lorilei Riley is a large black girl who was uprooted at age five when her mother marries and relocates to the small mostly white mining town of Appalachia. She is the object of ridicule and scorn. She immediately bonds with Micah Hamilton a young classmate who is also an outsider because of a large growth on his face.
Micah gets a chance at a normal life by having a surgery to remove the growth and Lorilei wonders as they both reach adulthood if Micah has remained with her out of friendship and loyalty or if a guy like him, could really come to love a plus size girl like her.
