From the press release:

Dear Angela includes fourteen critical essays that examine the brief-lived but landmark television series, My So-Called Life (1994-1995). Though certainly not the first young woman to be the center of a television series, Angela Chase and the show about her life were doing something new on television and influenced many of the shows about young people that followed. Dr. Michele Byers and Dr. David Lavery bring together enthusiastic and engaging voices that bear on a series that continues to be hailed as a breakthrough moment in television, even though more than a decade has passed since its cancellation. Tackling a broad range of topics - from identity politics, to music, to infidelity, and death - each essay builds upon a belief that My So-Called Life is a particularly rich text worth studying for the clues it offers about a particular moment in cultural and television history. Dear Angela offers a sophisticated analysis of the show's legacy and cultural relevance that will appeal to media studies scholars and fans alike.

It's proving to be a long, hot summer for Angela Chase and her friends. Angela's back with Jordan - sort of - and working at her dad's restaurant. Brian's still in love with Angela, still searching for Delia Fisher, and mesmerized by an older woman. Rickie's in love, too, for the very first time. Sharon breaks her vow to ditch Kyle and suffers the consequences. Rayanne gets hired and fired from a series of crazy jobs - but she has something a lot more important on her mind. This summer seems interminable. Or maybe terminal ...
