High school can be horrible, especially when your classmates make you feel like a freak. But sometimes that pain only means that finding the person who gets you is all the sweeter.

Loner Sara is in her last year of high school and is miserable. She is shunned by the girls in her class for being "weird" and spends her lunches smoking in a hiding place behind the school. That is, until the new girl, Andrea, invades her hideout one day. Andrea and Sara fall for each other instantly, bonding over their love of books and solitude. Things might actually start to look up for Sara, but then the world intrudes and threatens their happiness. Can their love survive homophobic classmates and parents?

Take Me For a Ride is the sweet, sensual story of two outsiders finding love and fighting to keep it.
