She's the school freak. Scarred inside and out. Dante is her only friend, the only person she can trust. Things begin to change and she discovers she's not alone and never has been. When the time comes she'll need to make a choice between life and death. She'll lose someone and something she's just found.
He's an African-American Albino who's been BFF's with Rori since Pre-k. He thinks she's the most beautiful girl in the world and he's never even seen her. Legally blind and totally smitten, he follows Rori around like a lost puppy and would protect her with his dying breath.
He's the new boy in school. He's hot, a jock, and a junior, off limits in Rori's world. Not that it matters, he can't get near Rori without almost being killed. Problem is he can't seem to stay away from her and doesn't want to either.
She's Jimmy's little sister and in every one of her classes. She's autistic, doesn't say much, and writes down every move Rori makes in her journal and no one seems to know why.
Tony & Tyreeq
They're cousins, inseparable, and the sophmore class clowns. They're also the bane of Rori's existence until she needs them. These unlikely allies join together to save lives, especially hers and Jimmy's, and to find out the truth about the link between them.
Frankford, the Philly neighborhood they live in under the El, provides challenges, answers, and hope.
