This was his third school in six years, and Channing wants nothing more than to go back to what his family had in the past. As his life spirals into depression and anger, he uses his inner voice and his new friend to give him strength to persevere.

Feel his heart break when the first girl he asks out, excepts him and then, rejects him. Then a girl who he thinks of as only a friend, becomes more than a friend and love blossoms. When a girl in his class suddenly disappears in his neighborhood. Channing finds out that she is being held by a very scary man in the basement of a house in his neighborhood. When the police will not listen to him, he makes the decision to rescue her on his own. He knows the price for failure could be his own life.
