Vada Sultenfuss is obsessed with death. Her mother is dead, and her father runs a funeral parlor.
She is also in love with her English teacher, and joins a poetry class over the summer just to impress him.
Thomas J., her best friend, is "allergic to everything", and sticks with Vada despite her hang ups.
When Vada's father hires Shelly, a makeup expert, in his funeral parlor, and begins to fall in love with her, Vada is outraged and does everything in her power to split them up.
