At 14, Boyd’s life goes the way of his hair–down the drain. His dad leaves and his curly brown mop follows. Now he wants out too.
Things seem to improve when he joins the Blazers. A fan of Superman as a kid, he develops an unusual interest in the inspirational sayings of Friedrich Nietzsche and his new coach almost seems to represent them.
Boyd works hard to win over his coach and teammates, but his misguided attempts alienate more than they impress.
Maybe he’d be better off running away like his dad–or can he find another way to pivot?
