A teenager describes his senior year:

I had loved Cleo since we were kids together. We were the real thing, destined to be soul mates. But in high school, Cleo decided she wanted the good life. She thought I was crazy, wanting to leave L.A., where all the money is. I hated the choking smog, the pollution, the brutal schools, gangs, killings, everybody uptight and mean, never any peace and quiet.

The mountains, desert, beachesaout there in the silence, my feet on the earth, I could feel a spiritual connection. Only Cleo vetoed our destiny when she got pregnant by Westside High's top jock. Then he restored my faith by dumping her. I was the stepfather at the birth, and I thanked God because I found a place in the country where the three of us could start life together. Then the baby's real father showed back up. Had God forsaken me?
