Have you ever wanted to run away?
I did run away. Twice.
The first time I ran to England. The second time I ran to Australia. Each time I ran a little further ... in search of a new life.
Maybe you've never physically run away, but in your mind you've run a thousand times.
People meet me and assume my life has been pretty good. But it hasn't always been. I've been through some dark things. You probably have too. I've seen some dark things. Just like you.
We're all broken. We've all been in dark places.
Finding light in the darkness is at the heart of everything I write.
Because isn't that what we all need?
Kaki is living a double life...
Sixteen-year-old Kaki Jones is like many teenagers living in suburbia. She makes good grades, runs on the cross country team, and helps care for her younger siblings. Her younger brother, Brandon, is the opposite. He parties, fights at school, keeps photos of naked girls on his cell phone, and runs into trouble with the police.
But Kaki harbors a secret. After meeting cool girl Sydney Diaz, Kaki’s life is forever changed. Now, she’s a sophomore by day and a commodity sold at the hands of gang members by night. Controlled by threats of violence against her family, Kaki sees no chance of escape.
When parents look the other way and strangers offer more affection than a father, God’s deliverance is the only answer.
