Being a teenager is hard enough. For Matt, being home-schooled not only makes him different, but creates a major obstacle to meeting girls and having a social life. When three girls from the YMCA pool invite him out one night, Matt hopes it is the start of his relationship with the opposite sex. But tragedy strikes and Matt loses two of the girls in an accident he caused. As he struggles with guilt and community hatred, Matt also finds love and acceptance from an unexpected source.  (Stephanie Nichols,,  USC School if Mass Communications and Information Studies- Student)
