Jeremy Biggs is a soccer star and member of the "in" group at West Central High.
He says the right things, acts the right way. The script, he calls it. But sometimes he wonders about being something different, maybe the guy in the white hat, the one who rescues damsels in distress. But there are no damsels needing rescuing. Or are there? Or is it Jeremy who needs rescuing?
These are Jeremy's junior and senior years in high school, the times of proms, awards and the big decision about college. Jeremy's college worry is who, if any, will offer him a scholarship. And if they do, where is the right place for him?
These questions, along with soccer and girl troubles take up most of Jeremy's thoughts. That is, until he spends the summer in Vermont helping out his ailing grandfather. There he finds a burned-out, one room school house where, he is told, a tragedy occurred about a hundred years ago. When Jeremy steps over the blackened threshold of the school and finds a classroom of students, he thinks he must be losing his mind. But when he falls in love with one of the students, life gets even more complicated.
