Juliet Milagros Palante decides to come out to her Puerto Rican family the night before she flies to Portland, Oregon for an internship with her favorite female author, Harlowe Brisbane. Her coming out is a disaster, and she isn't sure her mother will ever speak to her again. She tries to figure things out, and seeks the advice of Harlowe, thinking that she'd know what to do as a feminist authority. But she soon discovers that her idol doesn't have all the answers, she has to figure it out on her own.
