A teenage high school senior, Michael Lee, struggles with homework, dating, her reputation and her self-esteem along side her best friend, Nickie. Michael's precocious eleven-year-old sister, Kay, attempts to help her solve her dilemmas with the simple wisdom of prepubescent innocence and common sense. Best All 'Round is a story about growing up in Texas, circa 1958.
