November Nelson is the girlfriend of Josh Prescott. Josh is a cousin of Jericho Prescott, the protagonist of The Battle of Jericho. Josh comes to a tragic end one night in an accident that alters November's life forever. A high school club called the Warriors of Distinction has invited their group of friends to pledge. During one of the hazing activities, the pledge masters gave the pledges alcohol and asked them to jump out a window onto some mattresses. When November's boyfriend, Josh, jumped out the window, he hit his head on a rock and died.

November is, naturally, devastated, but she has even more trials in store. She soon discovers that she is pregnant with Josh's child. November grapples with the problem of how to tell Josh's grieving parents and how to tell her own mother. Her friendship with Arielle and Dana helps, but Dana is facing her own trials of sexual harassment from members of the club.
