It is a gripping novel about coming of age during a time of cultural upheaval and re-imagination of the American dream.After Joni Byrnes meets nineteen-year-old Ishmael, she stops caring about home, school, and swim team.

Instead, she embraces Ishmael’s hippy lifestyle of music, pot, and Hermann Hesse. When she sells marijuana for Ishmael, Joni gains notoriety as Joni Juana — but her newfound popularity ends in a bust. Ishmael goes to prison, but Joni avoids juvenile detention by agreeing to spend the summer of 1969 at Camp Saint Augustine of Hippo teaching inner-city black kids to swim.
