Milly Kaufman does her best to be a normal American teenager, but she feels haunted by her past. In her parent's bedroom is The Box, a mahogany chest in which the truth of Milly's past is stored. Milly, however, is afraid of her past, so she has never opened The Box, and she tries to forget that she was adopted by her parents when they were working for the Peace Corps in a third world country. Her parents never nag her to open The Box, because they know that when Milly is ready she will do so.
