Jules has attended Fullbrook Prep since she was a freshman. She knows first-hand the expectations and chains that hold her in "her place" and she just can't wait to get away from this place and the "good old boy" codes that permeate it.

Jamie is a scholarship kid and this is his last chance, so he better not blow it. His past holds secrets, but his natural hockey talent might be his ticket out if he can figure out how to navigate this new world he's suddenly been thrown in to.

Jules and Jamie something in each other, and their close but small circle of friends see it too. They know they can't keep quiet about the violent and demeaning "traditions" that have permeated this institution for far too long.

Tradition is a timely and powerful story that illustrates how the word "no" holds little power in worlds where privilege and tradition reign. It's a story of consent and empowerment that needs to be told.
