is sitting at a basketball game with his long time perfect girlfriend,
unable to think about the game. He is focused on the fact that though he
loved Cindy, as she did him, something was wrong. They needed to
talk about things, including the fact that something was wrong. Unfortunately,
the problem was they were not talking with each other and did not seem
to be able to start. Early in his junior year of high school, Max
broke-up with Cindy and was unable to give any reason except they couldn’t
talk. Cindy, their friends, family, and Max himself were unable to
understand exactly what has happened. Max slogged through his junior
year and into his senior year as editor of the school newspaper.
In his job as paper editor,
Max manages to have an edition of the paper so strongly censored that it
is recalled from the stands. While editor, Max seeks to guide staffers,
develop new features and frontiers for the paper. His success in this area
leads Max into relationships with people outside his normal range.
