George Richard's dad is a lawyer who'll pay George's way through law school at the Ivy League school of his choice. The problem is George doesn't know what he wants to do. He has insight into what makes his younger brother tick and is concerned about how his sister is hanging out with older guys. Richards has enough self-confidence to defy his dad and take a year off working as a gopher for a nursery. This is a fast-paced realistic look at the grief some kids face when their future plans are at odds with their parents' plans for their future.
