Augusten's mother is a deluded aspiring poet with bipolar disorder whose marriage to his dad is in ruins. Soon, she is seeing a very eccentric therapist named Dr. Finch, while Augusten is left in the care of Finch's wacky family. Abandoned by his parents and adopted by the Finches, he finds a kindred spirit in youngest daughter Natalie and motherly support from Finch's long-suffering wife Anges. Constantly recording the events of his life in his journal as a way to cope, Augusten finds himself avoiding school, learning about love from an older man, and making big decisions at the tender age of fifteen.
