"Sixteen-year-old Izzy is used to keeping her thoughts to herself, in school and at home. When she mistakenly walks into a stand-up comedy club and performs, the experience is surprisingly cathartic. After the show, she meets Mo, an aspiring comic who is everything Izzy's not: bold, confident, comfortable in her skin. Mo invites Izzy to join her group of friends and introduces her to the Chicago open mic scene. The only problem? Her new friends are college students, and Izzy tells them she is one, too. Now Izzy, the dutiful daughter and model student, is sneaking out to perform stand-up with her comedy friends. Her controlling boyfriend is getting suspicious, and her former best friend is suspicious. But Izzy loves comedy and this newfound freedom. As her two parallel lives collide, in the most hilarious of ways, Izzy must choose to either hide what she really wants and who she really is, or finally, truly stand up for herself"--OCLC.
