Tenderfoot follows the first year of a pampered, upper middle-class city girl in a Northern university. It is a character-driven, slice of life, coming of age story with relatable protagonists. It is a work of fiction with a healthy dose of social commentary that questions and deconstructs the fallacies of modern day society. Here, the main character learns from experiences, and matures, without reducing the supporting characters to plot devices; here, society is called out without the 'soap-boxing' or heavy-handedness we see in too many literary works. It doesn't impose moral lessons on its readers or try to tell you what to think. It lays all the cards on the table and forces you to make a choice.
