‘I’d been treating life like a chess game, forgetting to live in the moment when I had a chance. I had to change all that.’
Blake Morgan is the biggest geek in all the graduating class of 2005, possibly in all of Annapolis, maybe even the entire world. He decides that talking to a girl, doing something unexpected, getting an F, and performing a brave act during his senior year will make him into a whole other person. Maybe even cool.
Yet when he checks something off the list he hurts the few people who love him just the way he is. A loser. Is he able to repair the damage? Is changing who you are worth it? Can Blake be an astrophysicist and have a supermodel as a girlfriend?
Blake Morgan is stupid enough to wreck his life, but is he smart enough to put it back together?
