Sixteen year old Hal Smith is a quiet, unassuming, young boy with a bad knee and no dreams. Taught to help people, he does; without thinking before acting. In Year Ten in a new city and school, it’s a year of living in interesting times as he’s often in the wrong place at the wrong time, doing the right thing. He’d once dreamt of being an international athlete and had the skills to make them true, but lost them helping a stranger; and delivered a Star Performance greater than most athletes can ever do.
Events happen to him, and he shapes them to the advantage of his friends and himself. In the process, they learn about Hal and that he has secrets; one he doesn’t want to explain, one he’d like to forget – but is reminded with every step he takes, and another he doesn’t even think about. But his past comes back to meet him, and to help shape his future.
