As soon as Joshua Bailey arrives at Cambridge University he feels like a fish out of water, but his economics classes and extra-curricular activities leave him little time to debate whether or not he actually belongs in this world of southern affluence and centuries-old academic tradition. Soon Josh is fully engaged in the highs and lows of college life, from friendships that wax and wane and would-be romances to wild parties and subsequent hangovers.
