Chris Dunkin has lived a life of excessive partying since he was twelve. At fifteen, he is drinking more often and trying heavy drugs to keep himself high. But his dream of becoming a pro athlete is slipping away as quickly as his grades. Chris is empty inside, bored with the partying scene, and incredibly attracted to Courtney Angeletti. However, Courtney is Bryan Sartelli's girlfriend and is also the mayor's straight-laced Christian daughter. Chris sees inner strength in Courtney that he finds very attractive. Courtney is intrigued by Chris's "life of the party" reputation. Her hidden desire to rebel leads her to break up with Bryan and begin dating Chris. The more time Chris spends with Courtney, the less dependent he is on drugs. The night before his first day of high school, Chris throws a party and falls back into his old destructive ways. He decides to pull away from his friends to straighten out his life. Meanwhile, Courtney becomes better acquainted with Chris's friends and desires to gain their acceptance. This story of teenage acceptance and the resulting battle over moral convictions will hit home with many teens looking for answers.
