Attending North Heights High School is no walk in the park, especially on the first day of school. The school gang, known as The Rebels, has a reputation for picking on lower classmen, the “Low Dawgs.” For Leon and Tyson, who are new students at the high school, this is all too true. The Rebels immediately set their sights on tormenting them, never swaying in their relentless and destructive pursuit to cause mayhem in Leon and Tyson’s lives. Throughout the school year, another new student, Nikole, tries her best to act as the peacemaker and stand up to The Rebels, but she has her own Rebel to worry about—Bailey, a fellow lacrosse team member and the coolest girl in school.
It’s clear that the bullies need to be stopped, but how…and at what cost?
