Abstract:

"Primarily athletic, Ted slides through high school with mediocre grades, content to bask in the glory of his football accomplishment. But when he fails to obtain admission to college, he suffers the devastating anticlimax of anonymity and the boredom accompanying the menial jobs for which he is equipped. A scholarship to a New England preparatory school not only teaches Ted the value of education for those to whom learning is not instinctive, but also goes far to broaden his social horizon and place a value on a gentleman's integrity."--Kirkus.
