After years of living on the streets 17 year old Lie Jacobs has hammered the last nail in her coffin. Found on state property, in the middle of the night, with a spray can in hand, it as the last straw. With a long line of crimes to her name already, its time for a serious change. Or so her probation officer thinks.
And so Lie is shipped off to Spike Island, the juvenile delinquent center for troubled teens. There she’ll have to deal with the crowds, the teenagers and one in particular bad boy who seems to have taken a shine to her. Noah Lennon.
“I rested my hood clad head against the wooden boards and closed my eye. I was tired, so tired. Not having slept in days, I hadn’t eaten a good meal in weeks. People looked at me, not really seeing. All they took in was my appearance, the pale skin, deep purple bags and a server attitude problem.”
