Quinn has a bad past. Growing up with a alcoholic and drug addicted mother in Chicago, while living in a small apartment in the middle of the ghetto part of the city...she has to learn to be independent but street wise. Robbing grocery stores, to shop lifting, then drug dealing. She's been in and out of juvie and in and out of foster care. Man for themselves is what she has to live through everyday. What happens when this time in foster care she has to live with a "different" kind of couple, their names were Kevin and Veronica. That means she's going to have to get used to them..and the Gallagher's? What happens when she meets Carl Gallagher? Love or hate? What happens when she meets Debbie? Friends or enemies? Fiona,Lip, Ian? Cowards or family?
