Summary
"After her photo is posted and mocked online, Poppy becomes obsessed with the dark side of the internet. Her previously sunny disposition shattered, Poppy's outlook on life turns bleak. This disillusionment is only heightened by her love of the 1940s, an era she's been enthralled with since she was a young girl. Viewing the world through a vintage lens, Poppy yearns for simpler times and sees the present day as a discouraging time of doom and gloom. Poppy's twin brother, Cam, is aware of Poppy's unhappiness, but nothing he says or does can shake Poppy out of the cycle of negative thinking. As an escape, Poppy take a job as a sign waver at a local chicken shop. The costume she wears provides anonymity and protection from the outside world. Then she meets Miracle, a six year old girl who breaks through Poppy's feathery armor and introduces her to life under the Fifth Street bridge. There, Poppy meets a disparate group of people and sees firsthand the realities of life - the good, the bad, and the ugly. The question is, can she reconcile the positive and negatives of the modern world? Or will she continue to long for the past, when even then, things weren't always as they seemed."--
