Summer Gales growth is much slower than her peers, she is painfully shy and she is academically challenged. Beginning school she quickly learns that being teased, threatened, and bullied will be a way of life for her. At the tender age of nine years old she becomes a victim of a medical condition called Alopecia and she looses the one thing that made her feel normal, her beautiful hair. Summer Gale was born in a small farming town in 1948, a time when few victims received attention and even fewer received help from cruel bullies. Summer Gales mother begins her story by briefly telling about the stormy night she was born. Then Summer Gale continues from the first grade throughout her senior year of high school.
