It was amazing, Brett thought, how quickly life could go from easy and rosy to completely messed up. That's what happens during her junior year. First she decides to run for Student Body President â€" against her boyfriend Paul. Then Brett discovers a horrifying situation: her best friend Penny is dating one of the biggest drug users in school. When she talks to her old friend Sam about it, she learns that drugs are everywhere at her high school. Worse, they're even being bought at the junior high, and Brett's little brother is a student there! Frightened, Brett decides to do something. But she doesn't get any help from Paul or Penny. Thank goodness for Sam. It's a dangerous game, though, and before it's over Brett learns a lot about life, about having friends, and losing friends andâ€¦about love.
