Sixteen-year-old Jasper is finally focusing on schoolwork and his prospects of going to college. He's also looking forward to the freedom and seniority of his last two years of high school. But homework, soccer, and his strict father keep him from truly enjoying his status as a popular upperclassman. Befriended by the new algebra teacher, Jasper believes an adult finally understands him and his goals. Soon, their friendship develops into an affair. After their relationship is discovered, Jasper slowly understands that Mrs. Weber groomed and seduced him. Now he must confront the fallout and aftermath of their entanglement as a changed young man. If he can't return to the boy he used to be, can he recover from the damage of her misconduct?
