Jake Taylor has it all: friends, fame, a basketball scholarship and the hottest girl in school. What could be better?Enter Roger Dawson. Roger has nothing. No friends. No friends. No hope. Nothing but putdowns and getting pushed aside. Things couldn’t get worse… could they?Jake and Roger were best friends as little kids. But the politics of high school quickly pulled them apart. Now Roger doesn’t fit in Jake’s – or anyone’s circle – and he’s had enough. He walks onto campus with a gun in his pocket and pain in his heart and makes a tragic move.
Jake’s last ditch effort can’t stop Roger, and the sudden tragedy rocks Jake’s world. Something breaks loose inside and sends him questioning everything. Most of all, he can’t shake the question, “Could I Have Saved Roger?”
In a quest for answers, Jake finds himself looking for the next Roger and reaching out to the outcasts and lonely. But he quickly finds that crossing class castes threatens all his world is built on. And it could cost him his own friends, his girlfriend, his dreams and his reputation.
Oy vey. Woe is Jake.
