U is for Under It All, about teenage Cindy moving to Portland and attempting to attend Reed College. She ends up confronting some of her fears while participating in Food Not Bombs. V is for Vamoose, all about Cindy's tour with her band Snarla. W concerns Writing, what it means to be a "real" writer, and why she writes. XYZ is the epilogue, the newest part of Cindy's life. She and her sister have settled down in rural Ohio, and they're buying a house.
Cindy reminds us that no matter what, we need a community of weirdos and friends, to help us out, and allow us to help them in return.
