Adjusting to life at a Proving Ground (a military base that proof tests ammunition) in a Midwestern town where the residents hate the Army turns out to be harder than Kevin, the fourteen-year-old son of a Lieutenant Colonel, ever expected. While struggling to find a way to change one girl's mind about him, Kevin uncovers a plot to destroy the base. For Kevin, the Proving Ground is no longer only the base where he lives and his father works - it becomes the place where he must decide what he believes in, and whether or not he has the courage to stand up for it.
