Franky Bourgeois is fifteen, and he's already done more living than most. He was blasted out of a normal childhood in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit, leaving town with two older cousins nothing short of thugs. As hard as he tried, even for a good kid like Franky, their influence was hard to resist. Now Franky's just a heartbeat away from a life of crime, until he gets an unexpected chance to turn things around. Getting back on track is easier said than done, but Franky's always been a survivor. He'll just have to prove it one more time.
