Scott has hard time committing to anything; most of his sixteen years he has quit before he has finished. This summer his parents sign him up for an internship trying to help him get serious; college applications are just around the corner, after all. When his parents leave him home alone for a few weeks he quickly gets side tracked and skips the internship to attend a lecture in the city. Ironically, the author he cuts his internship to see is famous for studying and writing about grit, basically the art of resolve and sticktoitiveness. If anyone can help him become more committed the expert in grit might be his last best hope!
