Summary
"Seventeen-year-old Jacob Higgins is three months into his sentence at a northern Virginia juvenile detention center. A broken family, a lifetime of indifference, and a poorly planned robbery attempt have landed him here, enclosed in white cinder-block walls, waiting in line to sign out pencils, and eating food he can only describe as hostile. The one person to break the spell of this alternating apathy and adolescent rage is his fellow resident Andrea, a girl with dirty fingernails and an outlook seemingly as bleak as Jacob's. During shared sessions in the computer lab, and movie nights chaperoned by a police officer, an improbably tender romance unfolds. But their happiness is threatened when David, a uniquely disturbed inmate, forces Jacob to weigh the demands of his newly developed conscience against the glamour of destruction"--Cover page 4
