The Misfit Rebellion
Liv Sterling is sick of just about everything.
After returning from a two month long math camp in the mountains, her regular church kid life seems completely different, and the differences are only just beginning. Her best friend, Devon, starts to disappear when they're supposed to hang out, an odd boy named Henry's moved in over the summer, and her conservative family seems more constricting than ever.
When Devon urges her to join the science team, everything changes.
Suddenly, her father's anti-evolution campaigns seem outrageous, she's making friends with the class clown and a slightly insane artist, and the team is fighting against the one person Liv can't face: her father. As the misfits try to tear down social boundaries and stereotypes, the church starts to close in on a science teacher at Liv's school after teaching evolution in class - not required in the curriculum.
With interpretive dancing at Homecoming, struggles to make beliefs concrete, late night milkshake runs, and what could be a first love, Liv goes all in to the Misfit Rebellion.
