For high school senior Arrow Kenway, life is all about survival. As a Southie and an orphan that is not an easy task, which is something Roe Richardson-the new kid-cannot understand. Situations escalate as Arrow finds herself fighting to keep her family together and struggling to protect Roe from being pulled into a dark secret. When things continue to get worse, Arrow has to make a choice: continue to be a pawn in the hands of others, or, with the help of her new friends, lead the charge against the most powerful family in the city. But what if she fails? Is she strong enough to endure the outcome?
