After the Falls : It's 1960 and twelve-year-old Cathy McClure has just been thrown out of Catholic school for - among other transgressions - filling the holy water font with vodka. In the hope of giving Cathy a fresh start away from their small town, the McClures leave behind Niagara Falls and the family pharmacy to start over in suburban Buffalo. But life in a subdivision and a school filled with "pubescent cheddar" holds little appeal for a girl who began working at four and smoking at nine. As the quaint world of 1950s America receded into history, Cathy dives headfirst into the 1960s. Along the way, she adopts many personas with gusto - vandal, HoJo hostess, FBI suspect, a civil rights demonstrator - but when tragedy strikes at home, Cathy must take on her most challenging role yet.
