"If I really wanted to open up, I'd confess that I really am the liar everyone believes I am."
Everyone thinks Tola Riley is crazy. Everyone except Mr. Mymer, her art teacher. He doesn't care about her green hair, or nose ringÑand he gets her paintings and lets her hang out in the art room during lonely lunch periods.
Although Tola likes to keep to herself, when rumors start flying about an affair between her and Mr. Mymer, she is suddenly at the center of a scandal. The whole town is judging herÑeven her family. When Mr. Mymer is suspended, she has no choice but to break her silence. The question is, will anyone believe her?
