Embracing You, Embracing Me
It’s the 1990s. 16-year-old Roshell McRady dances her way through High School, never quite admitting that she’s ashamed of her trailer park family home.
She listens to Madonna while wondering why girls her age swap BFFs about as often as some boys change their dirty socks; she empties enough hairspray until her bangs are feathered and vertical like a lethal weapon; and she agonizes over how to convince Gabriel Harrison, the new Mystery Guy in town, to invite her to the prom – a night which threatens to turn into a disaster.
But then life takes a dramatic turn for Roshell, and her life changes forever.
A love story emerges from the anguish of Roshell’s life, and when she leaves school and finds work at a casino, things don’t get any less complicated for her – until one night a powerful dream marks out the exact path that she must take.
