Terry Novak doesn't think of himself as a tough guy, even though he is taking boxing lessons. While learning the sport, though, he is also learning about life and about himself. When the body of a shy classmate washes up on shore, Terry knows that something is up. With the help of his best friend, Abby, and the band of school outsiders that she gathers together, he will get to the root of the problem. Terry will have to find it within himself to confront the school bullies and to confront an authority figure in a way that he can solve the mystery and keep his dignity.
