High school is hard for most people and for Chloe Miller, this is no exception.  She is forced to learn the perils of her choices the hard way and the result leads her to building a steel wall around herself that is impossible to crack.

Eventually, her mother loses her job and Chloe is then forced to move in with her cousin and their family.  This means a new school and on the first day she arrives with a dynamite mission in mind.  A mission to reclaim everything that she had once lost at the hands of others.

She quickly finds herself fighting a past that she struggles to forget and creating a future that she can live with.  It becomes a constant battle for her, centered around peer pressure, character stereo types, cliques and consequences.  Couple that with the plight of falling in love and she finds herself playing a starring role in the game of life where everyone is playing for keeps.

Will she win... or will she lose?

     Chloe lifted her hand patted his cheek.  The boy didn’t have a clue.  “I, my friend, am your biggest adversary.  So what do you say Mr. Player, won’t you play with me?”
