Austin Opitz never meant to fall for rich and spoiled Yvonne Robinson. But when he saw her sobbing in the hospital cafeteria with a plate of ice cream melting in front of her, he couldn't walk away. So begins a strange friendship between two opposites: Yvonne, a recently diagnosed diabetic bitter about the mandatory change in her lifestyle; and jokester Austin Opitz, who covers up his own recent tragedy by playing class clown.
This is a story about teenagers getting a taste of life's ups and downs, and how they cope, despite tremendous odds.
