Synopsis

Can a person's life really be over at just 19? Sarah challenges this notion when, after flunking out of school, she decides to return to her hometown to try to gain a better understanding of what might be holding her back in life. Home is the hardest place for Sarah to teach herself to stop being a victim. But it is also likely the most important place to do it. She uses her newfound knowledge about herself to pull others out of similar crises, as love is rediscovered and friendship is borne out of adversity.
 
Angel Rock Leap is riddled with lost and broken characters, each guilty of hurting those around them because they, themselves, hurt. This is an anti-bullying story that is very Christian principle-based, with particular emphasis on the idea that hurting people hurt people.
