In a New York Minute *EDITING*
Jake Bellamy is a seventeen-going-on-eighteen year old who moved from England with his family to live in New York. At first it takes him a while to get used to everything, and before he knows it, he starts his first ever public school experience. As soon as he starts, everything changes. When Jake starts school, he learns a lot of new things. He meets new friends, joins the football team, has to deal with bullies, reaches out to people, and many more things.
As things seem to be going well, suddenly, in a New York minute, Jake's life changes. Everything suddenly goes downhill, and Jake realizes, as the song says, "In a New York minute, everything can change." As tragedy occurs, Jake struggles with the meaning of life, and seeks to find himself in the midst of tragedy.
