Love is not a thing that can just drop in anyone's lap (or maybe it can). Sometimes you have to fight for it, because this is reality, not a fairy tale. Just ask Jake Sampson when he moves from the upper Midwest to Northern California to spend his senior year. It doesn't take long to spread his wings in his new home.
Then lets look at Danny Skye, his roots have been there his whole life. Everybody accepts Danny Skye and why not? He's good looking, smart, and an all round great guy.
Of course this is no fairy tale.
