Rebecca, fifteen, is struggling with something big. Every morning, on the threshold between slumber and conciousness, she sneezes violently. Her mother insists that there are exactly nine sneezes every time, Rebecca disagrees. At school there are further irritations. The science teacher grapples with a class on human reproduction, impossibly pretty girls in magazines seem to taunt her, wolves in red cars harass her, her friend can’t find a boy who is truly ‘hot’ and to top it off, her mother flirts outragously with the science teacher. Rebecca wakes and sneezes again and again. She feels allergic to life. Rebecca needs to admit to holding onto a big secret before she can blow those sneezes away.
