Jen is a senior in high school, mourning the death of her parents. Her friends try to help-although their methods of doing so involve moving themselves one by one into her house. Her best friend, Alyssa, and Mitch, the guy she's dating, decide the best way to distract her is a party; it's about time the senior class had a pre-graduation bash. With Jen's parents out of the picture, the party takes place at her house. There's plenty of booze, but Mitch shows up with ecstasy as well. Jen's friends say there's harm in the drug, so they take the pills-with tragic results. After a trip to the emergency room, Jen's life is even worse than it was before. Suicide seems a comforting idea to her. She was once the cheerful girl next door. Now, she wants thing more than to end it all. Her therapist suggests hospitalization, and Jen wonders how she got here-how one mistake could ruin everything. She has a choice; she can continue down her dark path or turn her life around ... if it isn't too late.
