This novel contains two stories intertwined:
As a freshman, Abby is the star quarterback of her small town’s high school football team. When she finds out her family is moving to the big city and leaving behind everything she knows, Abby’s latent anxiety becomes a problem that she can no longer ignore. To be successful both on and off the field, she must face stigma and her own fears before her nervous symptoms become crippling.
Twenty years later, Abby has become a successful professor of psychology. Although her nervous symptoms are well under control, when she is thrown into the limelight, Abby experiences a new wave of anxiety. With the insight she has gained over the years, she works through her symptoms, reflects back on her path since high school, and finds that she still has a lot to learn.
