Jordan's father was sent to jail for a reason Jordan doesn't know. His mom won't talk about it and spends most of her time crying. Jordan tags school property, refuses to take tests, and picks on kids who look like easy targets. He's sent to detention almost every day, wondering if that's what it feels like to be in jail. But when Jordan discovers the truth about his dad's crime, he has to question the path he's on.
