"The door that was always closed is opening, and I am consumed.  I don’t know if a full minute goes by that I don’t think of him, that I don’t replay how it felt to have his hand brush mine, his eyes look my way. 
            And yet he’s hiding, still.  He talks as if my feelings for him are in the past, as if they couldn’t possibly be relevant now that I know the truth about him.  But I don’t have that kind of power over how I feel.  And if he doesn’t know that, he’s blind."

 "If a brother wanna get ahead, he gotta use every minute to better himself.
Everything I did made me better - tougher, stronger, richer, smarter - or I didn't

Take high school. A waste of time. Nobody there taught me what I needed to
survive on the streets...

In a school run by gangs, staying out was harder than joining. We knew who our friends were, and were careful what we said. If people thought we were haters, it would only be a matter of time...

Line are clearly marked at South Bay High School. It's mixed territory for the Crips and the Bloods, which means the drama never stops.

Julia DiVino wants none of it. No colors, no C-Walks -- it's not just her thing.

But when Eric Valiente jumps into her life, everything changes. Lines are redrawn. And then they're crossed.


Falling in love was never so easy . . .

or so deadly.


For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.
