Laurel has made it to the University of Georgia where she hopes to walk onto the school's world-class Gym Dawgs gymnastics team. Things couldn't be looking better. In her first pre-dawn practice session Laurel meets her idol, Olympic gold medalist Nadia Rhodenhauser. Nadia, it turns out, is not only willing to show Laurel the ins and outs of gymnastics success, but she is a committed sister in Christ.
Laurel's roommate, Payton Skky, is also a believer and a welcome friend. Too soon, though, a suddenly insecure Laurel falls under the influence of her suitemate Jewels. It wouldn't be so bad, except Jewels is prejudiced against African-American Payton, cruel to her own roommate Anna, and absolutely obsessed with the sorority rush.
When Laurel decides to rush the Alpha gams with Jewels, she has some choices to make about her personal conduct, her true friendships, and her gymnastics future. Will Laurel come to realize her true identity in Christ? Will she see the right path before it's too late? Will she look to God for strength and wisdom to make the tough call when the time comes?
Still haunted by the difficult and sometimes tragic events of her senior year, Laurel struggles to adjust to college life. Tormented by dreams of the past, she reaches out for Christ to give her peace even in her innermost thoughts. Dealing with the choice between Foster, who is a Christian, and Branson, who has pressured her to have sex, only further complicates her walk with the Lord and her adjustment to college life. Will Laurel come to see her absolute worth in the eyes of God as most important or will she bow to the pressures of her peers?
