Until two people change her world. Jimmi Sixes, a struggling street poet who is already a war veteran at just eighteen, introduces Mik to Fatima, a sixteen-year-old refugee who has just arrived in New York, all alone. These three struggling outsiders form an immediate and extraordinary friendship, but they also set off an explosive chain of events that will alter the course of each of their lives.
