The story of a boy who makes promises and a boy who breaks them.
Lyric Hollingsworth is what you would call a 'weird' child. Famous throughout school for his 'modes'. There's asshole, sarcasm and quiet mode. His modes act as a barrier between him having any sort of relationship with humans, therefore, he is used to being alone. No one talks to him except Claire.
Roland Marygold. Notorious for getting into fistfights and breaking promises. One of his best friends Claire, talks to everyone including the weird kid Lyric. Roland's known for his sass, obsession with leather and breaking a boy's arm.
Fate seems to be playing tricks when Roland meets Lyric in a hazardous way. Claire demands that Lyric stay with their friend group. And it can’t be helped when the rest of the friends begin to like Lyric’s company.
A friend group consisting of: The bad boy, the coffee addicted friendly nerd, the Latina girl known for breaking hearts, the tall and moody Asian who never smiles, the boy who's always in trouble, the bad boy's brother, and the bad boy's brother's parole officer.
Throw in some teenage angst, secrets, a lot of swearing, an unhealthy amount of caffeine, fire, sexuality, finding out who you are, bullying and mental health issues.
What could possibly go wrong?
