Ryan Dean West's life is complicated. He's a fourteen-year-old junior at Pine Mountain, a boarding school for rich kids. He's stuck rooming with the biggest jerk on the rugby team in the dorm for miscreants and troublemakers. And he's totally in love with his best friend, Annie, who thinks of him as a little kid.
As Ryan Dean tries to get a handle on school, life, and rugby, he finds himself muddling through a lot of decisions and making some major mistakes along the way. But nothing can compare him for what comes next. And when the unthinkable happens, Ryan Dean has to find a way to hold on to the important things -- no matter what.
