My Grade 8 Diary: a RE-coming-of-age story
Greer Willcox is a happy, healthy 28 year old woman...Until the day she is hit by a bagel truck and loses all of her memory of her formative high school years. Greer sets out on a journey of RE-self discovery as she connects with the people and memories she wrote about in her teenage diary. Throughout the series we are transported back to the hallways of her school and we are witness to moments of rediscovery and the recollection of memories. Were the things she wrote down the ACTUAL story? Who was the boy that she cryptically wrote about ? Along the way, the question remains; who was she then, and what does that mean for who she is now? After all, who wouldn't want to re-live high school, right?
