NPR Summary

This is the story of a seemingly normal family living the good life in the tropical paradise of Miami — mom Avis bakes, dad Brian is a lawyer who dabbles in real estate development, and son Stan eschews college to open a green market. It's the daughter, Felice, who disturbs this facade when she runs away at 13.
