Jude, a 15 yr old boy, thinks his mom gave him up at birth. Only after his drug dealing father is killed do the authorities find out that Jude’s mom is the District Attorney. They also discover that Jude’s dad kidnapped him when Jude was 3wks old. With open arms, Jude’s mother Anna Grady, welcomes him into her swell life and sends him to a very nice prep school. One of his schoolmates OD’s on drugs and innocent Jude is immediately put under the knife. Harry, his mom’s boyfriend and the deputy police commissioner, tricks him to help Anna get elected on an anti-drug platform. He will clear Jude’s name, he promises, once Anna is elected. Jude, in turn, is tried as an adult and sent to jail for 5yrs. He then finds that Harry never meant to help him in the first place. He then learns to fight in jail. He needs to for his own good; survival of the fittest. This book has many twists and turns in it.
