Being a teenager is hard enough. Add to the mix a persistent case of head-lice, raging hormones, and a terminally ill mother? It becomes impossible.
When fifteen-year-old Anna is told that her mother is dying of cancer, she responds the only way she knows how: by ignoring the issue. Friends and family are unable to understand her reaction and Anna is increasingly frustrated by their attempts to help her. And she can’t stop itching.
Told by Anna with assistance from her best friend, father, aunt, and her dying mother, Scratch is a moving and candid coming-of-age tale about grief from all angles. Things don’t always go the way we want them to or the way we think they will.
