Celia’s dark clothes match her dark mood.  She once was a girl who had friends and a nice family.  Now she is alone and her parents are separated.  Add to that the horrible prank that mean girl Sandy Firestone played on her last year, things are looking pretty grim for freshman year.  But the new boy in class takes an interest in Celia and the two become friends.  Drake has some issues of his own and confides his secrets in Celia.  Can the two of them come to terms with the past?  Can Drake help Celia understand that sometimes friendship is more important than revenge?
