Life isn't easy for Melinda Radford. She¿s the lone girl on the Ashton High wrestling team¿dealing with opponents who refuse to compete against her, a few who want to crush her, and a coach that seems less-than-pleased having a girl in his practice room. At the same time, Mel¿s parents have forbid her from seeing her new boyfriend, her grandmother insists she give up a fun job at the mall for a dreary office internship, and her infuriating older brother, who¿s the varsity team captain, is constantly flirting with her best friend, Jade. Just when it seems things can't get any more complicated, an off-handed comment 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 girl in Ashton High¿s history has ever done, and to redeem herself in the eyes of many. How will she handle it all? Can she handle it all?
