Eliza Quan is set to be editor in chief of her school newspaper. She has the experience, the knowledge, and the desire. At the last minute Len DiMartile decides to run against her and wins on his smile and charm. Venting her frustration in an opinion piece she never meant for anyone to see, she is surprised when Len reads her words back to her from the newspaper’s website. He wasn’t the only one to see it, and now it isn’t just the patriarchy she is fighting.
