The aftereffects of treatment have left Jeffrey with an inability to be a great student or to walk without limping. His parents still worry about him.

Jeffrey has a little soul searching to do, too, which begins with his escalating anger at Steven, an old friend who is keeping something secret, and a girl who is way out of his league but who thinks he's cute.
