Jason Vincent is the star of Cross High's basketball team. Half of the girls at his college-prep school want him, but Lisa is his girlfriend and they've been together for a year. Jason doesn't have it in his heart to disrespect a female, so even though girls are in his face all of the time, flirting and giving him their phone numbers, he'd never actually cheat. There is one girl he's been eyeing since ninth grade, though. Her name is Kyra Evans. She's confident, she's smart and she's not trying to fit in. She's different than most girls. So different, in fact, that when Jason spends quite a bit of time with Kyra working on a school project, Lisa isn't the least bit threatened. Afterall, what guy in his right mind would choose a not-so-attractive, plain dressing, brainiac, virgin over her? Lisa and all the other kids at school school get the shock of their lives when Jason breaks up with Lisa and makes Kyra his new girlfriend.
Kyra Evans didn't intend to develop feelings for another girl's man. She didn't think Jason was her type and even if he was she certainly didn't think the most popular boy in school could ever have feelings for her. The more she gets to know him the more she likes him and it doesn't take long before she realizes she's in love - before they realize they're in love. But then Kyra's insecurities get in the way and everything get's messed up.
Jason Vincent and Kyra Evans - I like these young people. Jason knew the meaning of the word NO. He wasn't a virgin, but he didn't pressure Kyra when he knew she wasn't ready. He was willing to wait. Kyra was a very intelligent girl with dreams and goals, and she was there for Jason when he really needed someone to talk to. They were a nice couple.
Parents: There is profanity here and there, and sexual content.
