With reign over the city's drug trade, Benjamin Atkins made sure that his precious daughter, Raven, was secluded from the gritty city. But when Raven's young heart gets claimed by Mizan, a kid in search of a come-up, there's nothing Benjamin can do about losing her to the streets. Puppy love always feels right, but when hugs and kisses turn to bloody lips and black eyes, she realizes that Mizan is not who she thought he was. Raven becomes desperate for a way out, but this time, Daddy can't save her. What will she do, when the only way out is in a coffin?
