High jumper Jani Felix is on a full ride at the University of Gatica, a Division One NCAA school. She is determined to make NCAAs, enjoy the year with her new roommate, Aileen Nessa, a hurdler from Ohio. What she is trying not to do is focus on one of the varsity team’s top swimmers, Carter Daily.
When Jani’s grades begin slipping she keeps it quiet, afraid to ask for help. When her performance results start dropping, she can’t hide from it anymore. She has to make the decision if she’s going to sink or swim.
