Mike has dealt with a lot in her short life--the death of her father, her mother's increasing isolation, few future prospects in her small Kansas town. She finds hope in being strong on the softball field and at the gym. But then, another source of hope comes to town-Xanadu, the new girl. Mike is in love. But Xanadu is straight. Or is she? Will Xanadu be Mike's future, or is it time for Mike to learn some hard lessons, and plan her future for herself, not someone else?
