A former star and high school standout, Kennedy is now a lowly first-year college student. She is quickly and harshly humbled by her new surroundings. Classes, team politics, and even new friendships are difficult to pace, let alone master. Initially, she grins and bears it—mostly because that is what the ultra-conservative college leadership encourages. “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” …Besides, the new obstacles give Kennedy something to focus on other than the cute girls sitting in her lectures, sporting spandex at practice, and moving in right down the hall.

Daughters of Atlas is set in the pastoral Midwest during the late 1990s. Kennedy and her friends tackle love, friendships and self-reflection in a society that feels both nostalgic and strangely relevant to modern life.
