One day, single mother Sara Weston goes to the store and never returns, leaving her teenage son alone with his damaged past. Keith had survived an act of arson with devastating physical and emotional scars. Without Sara, he had no one to help him, no money, nothing to live for but the medications that numb his pain. Isolated and angry, his hatred has one tight focus: his half sister. Maggie's back home after a year in prison for acts that led up to the fire. Now the person Keith despises most is the closest thing he has to family.
