Avery was always just part of the gang, she was never pictured as a broad or toy, not to her friends. She was always there, through everything, no matter how violent or how heated it became she was always right there for her gang no matter what it might cost her. She loved those boys with all of her heart. They weren't just her friends, they were her brothers. When Avery's father dies leaving her all alone, it's her gang's turn to pick up the pieces. As she grows closer to Soda, her best friend, their feelings toward each other increase rapidly. Horrid nightmares and silent tears to hurtful lies and bloody switchblades, Avery and the gang must come together to avoid falling apart. **All rights go to the amazing S.E. Hinton** This story takes place before the plot of the actual Outsiders occurs, so Johnny and Dally are still with us and breathing.
