For one student, college is about to become the education of a lifetime.
When Jay Ferragamo becomes Editor of The Scope, South Central College's campus newspaper, he quickly learns the financial disaster he's been handed. Rather than giving up, Jay embarks on a mission to secure the needed funds to revive the newspaper, and receives a lesson in both campus and small-town politics. Complicating matters, Jay learns the source of The Scope's financial travails; thievery by a former staffer who belongs to one of the college's most generous families. Calling this person to account will mean not only exposing one of the most notorious scandals in the city's history, but could also destroy Jay's college career.
Will Jay be able to get The Scope back in business and get justice, or will he and his newspaper become the big story?
