Synopsis

Michelle Pena's life is postcard perfect. She has a loving father, a new best friend, and a shot at a track scholarship at a prestigious prep school. It's everything an Ivy League-aspiring suburban girl could ask for. But Michelle isn't one of those girls.

She's a gang princess. Or at least she was until a gruesome crime tore her family apart. Money disappeared. Her mom landed in prison, her brother in juvie. Only Michelle escaped.

Turns out she didn't run far enough. Herold gang want their money back, and they have finally caught up to her. Michelle's childhood love, Silver Mendoza, says he's after the cash, too. But what he really wants is her.

This special two-in-one edition includes the first book in the series and its never-before-published sequel.
