There is nothing special about Matt Lathrop.  He is like many other invisible high school kids.  So why does Skye Colby start noticing him?  At first, he assumes that it might be a joke but Skye seems to really be interested in him.  She wants to keep their relationship secret though.  That suits Matt just fine.  What would people think if they knew that he was dating the queen of Goth.  At first, Matt is focused on the promise of his first sexual experience but then becomes more involved in Skye's problems.  He is blinded to the fact that her stories tend to contradict each other.  What is really going on with this dangerous game of Playing in Traffic?
