Always the new girl, Theresa Beatrice Delaware can never seem to find her groove. That all changes, though, when she meets Dominick Gryphon. At first glance, Tess - an honors student with perfect attendance - and Dom - a carefree, do-whatever-he-wants musician - appear to be complete opposites, but they quickly learn that they have more in common than their stereotypes suggest.
