Fifteen-year-old Kendra James hasn’t been feeling like herself lately. It isn’t anything she can explain. And truth be told, it isn’t anything her parents seem to want to hear. So she’s left to fend for herself against the cloud of sadness that seems to have settled permanently above her head.
Things take a turn for the better when Kendra’s older sister Meisha suddenly reappears after having mysteriously disappeared ten years before. Things are looking up—until the day the girls are discovered together and are forbidden to see each other.
Enter Kendra’s uncle—a popular former professional football player who steps into the picture, showering her with gifts, money, and even better, the attention she so desperately craves. Once again, Kendra finds herself in a relationship she must keep secret, especially once he makes a move that changes everything forever and sends Kendra’s world into a tailspin from which she’s not sure she’ll ever recover.
