"An unforgettable story filled with tension, drama, and humor." —Fred Aceves, author of The Closest I've Ever Come
Rocky’s the most loyal 16-year-old you’ll ever meet: loyal to the Three Star Pa gang, which his father runs in Seoul, Korea; loyal to his best friends, who accompany him everywhere he goes; loyal to his ever-escalating public bullying of Ha-na, a girl at school; and, finally, loyal to the memory of his mother, even though there are some things about her that he tries to forget. He loves his friends, his city, and the power he wields. But when he catches his father in a lie, the truth is exposed, and his life begins to unravel—and Rocky has no idea where it’s going to lead.
Rocky both fears and looks up to his violent father, a gang leader in South korea. He's the only parent Rocky's known since his mother disappeared when he was a child. As his father begins to spiral out of control and he learns more about his mother's disappearance, Rocky has to tackle all the darkness from his past head-on.
