I heard the gunshot and I knew what had happened. Even before I made it downstairs to Dad's office, I knew what he'd done.
How do you live your life after catastrophe hits your family? How do you go back to football practice, or take a girl out on a date, or talk to your friends about normal stuff when nothing is normal anymore? Three years after his father's death, Jordan is still wondering.
But then, salvation comes—in the form of a '76 Corvette. It's gorgeous, it's beautiful, it's incredibly sexy. And so is the girl who suddenly takes notice of him.
Slowly Jordan realizes that maybe, just maybe, he can start living again. But the real question is: Does he want to?
