In this gritty novel, a young Jenny Rivera is drawn into the crime that provides the only means with which to stay alive. Her problems at home only hasten her descent into corruption. Jennys inherent desires to survive and to be loved are so powerful that they have the potential to destroy her. Is it too late for her to escape this treacherous path of self-destruction?
