Easy-going Glen begins his last year of high school unaware that his tranquil life will be the first casualty of Charlie Thornton’s arrival in town.
When the new doctor’s family moves in across the street, Glen Sauten is happy to show the son, Charlie, around the small town.
With his good looks, charisma, athletic ability, and sports car, Charlie soon has the whole town in his corner.
Well, all except two people:
Nicole, the prettiest girl in town (and the pastor’s daughter), has no intention of dating Charlie—no matter how many times he asks her.
Luke, Glen’s best friend since kindergarten, dislikes Charlie on sight and longs to wipe that arrogant smile off his face!
As Glen assists Charlie in his quest to date Nicole and tries to sidestep the hostility between Charlie and Luke, he faces major problems—some life-threatening, others life-changing.
A coming-of-age series that blends humour, adventure, and romance with a search for the meaning of life.
