Rookie lit teacher Sylvia Barrett’s first day at Calvin Coolidge High School isn’t what she expected: a delinquent student body, a crumbling infrastructure, and an administration that drowns its staff in paperwork and rules. She soon finds herself involved in the start of a romance, a near war with an administrator, and in the unexpected, sometimes heartbreaking lives of her students. Can she make a difference?
