When seventeen-year-old track and field star Jesse Collins's dreams of a full scholarship are shattered after the sudden death of her dad, she leaves home to work as a summer camp counsellor to escape the nosy stares in small town...and her own secret guilt. After a mix-up at registration, she's put in charge of a boys' cabin, and the head counsellor, Kirk, predicts she won't last the first two weeks.
In the midst of fending off four twelve-year-old boys who are hell-bent on mortifying her and a growing attraction to Kirk, Jesse finds the inspiration to run again from an unlikely source. After all, a good pair of legs can take a girl far, but it's facing the truth that makes all the difference.
