In life he was her strength. In death she must be his.
Street artist Spark and dreamer Kayla are outsiders wherever they go: in their new home city of Oxford, at home, and at school. They made a promise to keep each other safe. Whatever.
3 Years of bullying and abuse later, Spark’s body is falling apart from self-harm and addiction when a brutal attack by classmates leaves Kayla unconscious and Spark half dead.
Now Kayla is about to find out what “whatever” means.
In a desperate bid to keep him alive, she steals a teacher’s car, straps Spark into the passenger seat, cuts a deal with his dealer, and runs.
When they end up at the Forgotten and Alone Club in London’s underworld, it feels like they’ve found a home at last. But it soon becomes clear that it’s too late for Spark, that their past is closing in, and that there is something very wrong about their new friends. And the way they look at Kayla.
