Stevie Cartwright is stuck. Her two best friends, Jasper and Oliver, have changed drastically and she just can't put her finger on what it is. Well, not until she discovers just how far her precious boys are willing to go for their reputations and a supposed 'family legacy.' The boys have really gotten themselves in deep this time, and neither of them seems to be aware how bad the problem is.
Fun and games have long passed now, and it's all they can do to keep themselves alive, especially when a dangerous rival lurks in the shadows, controlling the town and its people like pawns. When every life within a three mile radius is on the line, how careful must they tread to protect the innocent?
Gangs to Stevie are stupid. They're just excuses for people to run around killing each other and assume there are no consequences, especially not when there's a so-called 'rivalry' going on. A pacifist since birth, the violent underworld she finds herself immersed in is both frightening and enfuriating. Somebody has to stop it, but can one seventeen year old girl really make that big a difference?
A war is raging, and people are getting hurt because of it. One man's legacy left to a golden son might just be the trigger to send the whole world falling down, and thousands of people with it.
