Perfect son, football star, scholarship kid; Calum Hood has everything going for him at the university. But when he isn't meeting his credit lineup and his advisor places him in Debate class for his sophomore fall semester, things start going downhill fast. Now on the edge of a failing grade and missed tracking obligations, Calum is at risk of getting kicked off the team and losing his scholarship grant. Advised by his friend Peter, he resorts to the only thing left he can think to do--talk to his professor, Mr. Hemmings. They appear to form an instant mental connection, and it only continues to grow as they meet each other more and more.
