They always say that violence is never the answer. That the "pen is always mightier than the sword".

Well, what if someone takes that very same pen and sinks it's tip into your neck? Or if you're up against a wall with that sword pushed against your throat? What if violence is the only option you have left? For people like Patience Phillips it's either fight with all she has or watch her happiness be shattered to pieces, one painful shard at a time.

With an increasingly abusive uncle giving her bruises faster than she has time to cover them, Patiences is fed up with having nowhere to go. 

Until she crosses paths with infamous classmate Dean Sawyer.

With a piercing glare, know-it-all tendencies, and a constant chip on his shoulder, the two mix about as well as oil and water. But after a chance encounter in the middle of the night, Patience uncovers a shocking secret that suddenly makes the troublesome boy the perfect solution if she's going to take down her uncle.

But how long can she keep the harsh realities of her life a secret from everyone? And how long before Dean's own inner demons get the best of him, dragging her down with him?

Neither is sure of what lies ahead, but one thing is certain....they'll do what they have to do. True fighters never quit.
