The story is simple. Depressed boy meets crazy, possibly legally insane, girl at therapy and a whirlwind adventure starts including attending mass dressed as a pregnant nun whose water breaks on the altar, the Gnome Liberation Project which involves stealing regular garden gnomes and replacing them with ones that got a Queer Eye for the Straight Guy makeover to look like either the biker from the Village People or the Gimp from Pulp Fiction- the verdict is still out on that one. Korin dressing in drag as a candy striper in order to bust Micha out of the hospital and in the process gets felt up by an old pervert going to x-ray, and so much more!
Korin is just like any other sixteen, the only difference is he goes to therapy twice a week, at his father’s request, to deal with the stress and depression that has resulted from finding his mother dead. Korin is musically gifted, a trumpet player, and his best friend is a 6'3" dancer named John, who is also known as Captain America. Where John is 6'3" and the All American Guy that loves everything and everyone, Korin is 5'4" and bitter at the world. The only disagreement they have ever had is that they are in love with the same girl. How can Korin compete with Captain America?
Micha is nothing like a typical teenager. Standing at six feet tall and wearing costumes nearly every day as an artistic expression, she goes to therapy twice a week, at her Aunt Jay and Uncle Erik’s request so she doesn’t go on a postal shooting rampage. After years in an institute relearning how to do the most basic tasks, she moves in with her mum's brother.
That first meeting in therapy changed Micha and Korin lives for the better. What therapy can’t fix they fix in each other. Micha helps Korin to be less introverted and cynical and Korin teaches Micha how to be more grounded. An intense love builds between the polar opposites that rivals that of Romeo and Juliet.....minus the whole suicide ending.
