In simple terms, this book is the love story between Alex, a tough gang member and Brittany, a rich blood princess type. Two very different people who have a kindred soul and are walking through life wearing an armor for their survival. The story begings when they are partnered for a chemistry project leading them to mingle their problems. From threads of losing their life to maintain a facade for the family's sake they both will find the strength in the other.
The book has some parts that were hard to read, but were essential to the story to show the reality surrounding a gang member, otherwise would have lacked authenticity. Despite the fact this book would have your heart in your throat the end gives the reader hope. Personally, is the best ending I have ever read in a book because I realize no everything goes as planned but at still it will fall into place, sooner or later.
