In the second installment to The Last Shall Be First series, the main character, Caleb, takes a back seat as Noah's Christian Academy gains a new member to the student body. Jonetta Jenkins is a bright, but seemingly delinquent child who has had a few hang-ups in life. Raised by her single father, Jonetta has to come to terms with living a life without her mother. Until one day Caleb befriends Jonetta and embarks on finding out the real reason why her mother is not around, in the hopes of reconnecting the two together, if only for one moment in time.
