Navigating high school isn't easy for Melinda Radford.

She's the lone girl on the Ashton High wrestling team, grappling with opponents who refuse to compete against her, a few who want to crush her, and a coach who's less-than-pleased having a female in his practice room. At home, Mel's parents forbid her from seeing her new boyfriend, her grandmother insists she start preparing for her future by taking a dready office internship, and her infuriating older brother - who's the varsity team captain - flirts with her best friend, Jade.

Just when it seems things can't get any more complicated, an off-handed comments puts Mel at odds with her teammates, her brother, and - worst of all - her coach.

But through a strange twist of tragedy and fate, Mel is given an unexpected opportunity to accomplish something no girls in her school's history has ever done - something that just may redeem herself in the eyes of her detractors. But is she strong enough to handle the pressure?
