To survive, Josie's been living under the radar as a homeless kid while trying to find a way to knock the cop down a few notches and put her on the other side of the prison bars. But time's running out. A pimp's got his eye on Josie, and if she doesn't get off the streets soon, she'll be the one brought down. Her salvation and the key to the cop's undoing seem to lie with a car thief and a rich kid.

Part of RETRIBUTION-a high-interest trilogy that can be read in any order.
