Forced to navigate a world with New Coke, an MTV that plays actual music videos, and a mother who takes her to keggers and tries to set her up with the future mayor, Carri worries that she will screw up her future like she's seen in the movies, so she befriends three nerds (who else would understand the time-space continuum?) One of those nerds, Nate, might have the key to her time travel...and her heart
When her mother's tragic past catches up to Carri's present, she'll need to walk a mile in Heather's jelly shoes if she's going to save both of their futures.
