Honey and Agnes are both 14 and live at Mount Blessing - a religious compound. That's where the similarities end. Agnes wants to live up to the examples of the saints and the perfection that Emmanuel, the group's leader, expects of them. Honey sneaks TV, swears, and thinks that even Emmanuel himself isn't perfect! They're best friends anyway, but are beginning to grow apart. When Agnes' grandma makes a surprise visit on the day the two girls have received a harsh punishment, their whole world is turned upside down. Is Emmanuel truly perfect? How do you decide what to believe?
