"Sam is a kick-boxer, training for the nationals. - But her biggest test still lies outside the boxing ring."
I know what it means to be hit. I mean ' punched in the face so your eyes water and your head swells up' kind of hit. The kind that makes your eye black, and teaches you the significance of foundation and black shades. That’s the kind of hit I know, and it’s the kind I’ve been trying to master, ever since I had my first fight in the second grade.'
Sam is a different kind of girl - she's a hard hitting kick-boxer with her sight set for nationals, she keeps her focus clear and tries to keep the guys from the club from distracting her ( which isn't always easy!) - BUT one night her life takes a turn for the worse, and from then on she finds her skills being tested, both physically and emotionally. Will she ever be the same? Will she ever figure out what she wants ( and who she wants?). And how will she ever manage to get her kickboxing arse to nationals with all the distractions of her life coming in the way?
