A teen on the hunt to solve his older brother's murder may get more than he bargained for when he hits the streets for answers 

Three months after being sent to a youth camp to recover from a suicide attempt, and to build her esteem and happiness, seventeen-year-old Sabrina Arnold is finally free to go home and start her senior year. Determined to finally get the approval from her mother she's always wanted, Sabrina's looking on the upside of life. That is until she meets young and carefree Nico Brown.
            Nico Brown hasn't exactly had an easy life, living on the rough side of the city, he's learned fast that life is short and each day is not promised. Angered by the unsolved shooting death of his brother, Nico's trying his hardest to get past things. When he meets Sabrina, seeing the scars on her wrists and the sad and heavy look in her eyes, he can't help but fall for her. Bringing her joy relinquishes the darkness inside of him, making him think that just maybe things will get better. That is until her mother comes and quickly forbids their union, deeming Nico unfit for Sabrina, opening up more anger and wounds inside of Nico. 
            Torn between a boy who does what she can't and a woman she's tried so hard to make happy, Sabrina has no clue what she's to do. Soon, she starts to wonder if maybe it's time to start living for herself and finally put her mother in her place. But ignoring her mother may come with its consequences, because Nico may just be as dangerous as her mother warned.
