When a town grows fast, the kids at school can have quite a time finding the group that fits them best. In an unlikely trio, Buck - who lives in a trailer with Dad -- and Kate, who's a long time resident, at 16, already more responsible than her Mom -- and Trav, a lawyer's son, up tight, but familiar with how to deal with Skeeter, the class bully -- all hang out at Kate's grandmother's place. How well do Buck and Kate know Trav? When Buck ends up at Police Headquarters and misses Kate's opening night, he starts to wonder just what makes Trav tick.
