Summary
High school senior Jesse Alderman, or "Sway," specializes in getting things people want - term papers, a date with the prom queen, fake IDs. For Jesse, life is simply a series of business transactions. But when Ken Foster, hires Jesse to help him win the heart of Bridget Smalley, Jesse finds himself falling helplessly in love for the very first time. He also finds himself in an accidental friendship with Bridget's belligerent and self-pitying younger brother who has cerebral palsy. Suddenly, Jesse is visiting old folks at a nursing home in order to run into Bridget, and offering his time to help the less fortunate, all the while developing a bond with this young man who idolizes him. Could the tin man really have a heart after all?
Summary
Jesse Alderman, also known as Sway, avoids emotional connection at all costs, but he's ultimately forced to open his heart when he meets the girl of his dreams
