Maria's world is turned upside down when she becomes the target of a gang taking over Carson Middle School. She soon learns her street smarts and savvy are no match for the bullies and thugs that make up her school's biggest gang.
Maria finds some hope when she unexpectedly finds herself under the instruction of two mysterious martial arts instructors. But is it too little, too late? Can the streetwise tough girl relearn everything she knows about fighting and survival to keep the gangs at bay?
Ultimately, the choice of how to confront the thugs and gangs is hers alone, and Maria must choose between the way she knows and a new way forward. And the stakes couldn't be higher: her life, and her school, depend on making the right choice.
