“Life Changes, Love Doesn’t”. Phil, a young gymnast, is not the most popular girl at the gym and often suffers the ridicule from Leila, the gym’s Queen Bee (or so she likes to think). However, Macey has stuck by Phil’s side so much that Phil has developed feelings for her that she has never had for anyone before. When Phil has a horrific accident during practice that puts her life at risk, she sees the world differently and the future she can have with the one she cares about most.
