(From the publisher):
Four guys - Tommy, Brad, Andy and Shane - all making their way in the uncertain world that is the last year of high school. All trying to find a way to become a man.
Tommy, model student, is heading for the military to learn to fly fighter jets, something that will please his doting grandmother and free him once and for all from his abusive parasite of a mother. His best friend, Brad, is being scouted for Junior B, which will finally satisfy his ambitious hockey dad, whose relentless pressure has turned his son into the team enforcer. Andy is on the verge of making his acting breakthrough. He's got an agent, and he's got an audition for the role that could launch his career - the Punk. All he needs is someone who can show him the moves and teach him the hard stare. He turns to Shane, the kid who is so scary that even the teachers are afraid of him.
Four combustable guys, and when they meet, the shells they have constructed for themselves start to crumble, and the situation turns toxic, and tragic.
