‘Dear Zoe’ Plot
Tess DeNunzio is a fifteen-year-old struggling with split families, school, sex and drugs, and the unexpected death of her baby sister, Zoe. Zoe’s death throws Tess’s family into a state of utter confusion: her step-father now works late, her mother sleeps all the time, and her little sister, Em, is left alone. Meanwhile, Tess falls into a state of unrelenting guilt; she feels as if she is responsible for Zoe’s death. As a result, Tess decides to move in with her biological father for a while, to find the space she needs to grieve and find acceptance. At her father’s house, she discovers pot, her neighbor/boyfriend, Jimmy Freeze, and sex.
Ultimately, Tess realizes that she needs to move back home with her mother and step-father; she finds a purpose in being there emotionally for Em. And, Tess finds a certain comfort when the entire family decides to go to counseling and learns to grieve together.
