“Freedman writes a sensitive portrayal of a young girl’s questioning of her sexual identity.”
It’s 1973 in the sleepy Connecticut suburbs and sixteen-year old Zoe Diamond has way more than sex, drugs and rock n’ roll on her mind. Her best friend Naomi has threatened to commit suicide, and while Zoe wants to help her, she also wouldn’t mind a conversation-starter with their young Hebrew school teacher Ricka, for whom she’s developing confusing and intense feelings. Ricka is like no one she’s ever met: maddening, inspiring, and most of all, she challenges Zoe to make worthwhile choices in a world she doesn’t totally understand.
Parachuting is a raw and complex coming of age story about figuring out who we are, and what we expect of ourselves.
