"The Mall In America" centers around female protagonist, Sam, as she navigates the sociological and psychological realities of adolescent life. Readers follow Sam through the strained atmosphere of her home, into the transcendental realm brought on by an "Aquatic Underworlds," an IMAX production.Told in the humorous yet vulnerable voice of a teenager, "The Mall In America" demonstrates the varying levels of complexity within human life.
