Neil Josten is the newest addition to the Palmetto State University Exy team. He's short, he's fast, he's got a ton of potential—and he's the runaway son of the murderous crime lord known as The Butcher.
Signing a contract with the PSU Foxes is the last thing a guy like Neil should do. The team is high profile and he doesn't need sports crews broadcasting pictures of his face around the nation. His lies will hold up only so long under this kind of scrutiny and the truth will get him killed.
But Neil's not the only one with secrets on the team. One of Neil's new teammates is a friend from his old life, and Neil can't walk away from him a second time. Neil has survived the last eight years by running. Maybe he's finally found someone and something worth fighting for.

AMAZING!! (Pls make a tv show hehe)
I loved this book so much!! From the plot to the characters everything was just amazing. This would honestly make a great tv show!!
It's hard to explain why it works . . . but it DOES!
On its face a book about an invented sport, a cast of misfits, violence, recovery, abuse, etc., should not work. And yet, it does.
—spectacularly. I started reading the first book and didn't stop until finishing the 3rd. It ran me through the gamut of emotions and left me feeling hopeful at the end. I'll take these characters with me for a long time. And this would, by the way, make a great TV show.
This is my favorite book. It is awesome and I’ve reread it more than 5 times. I love the characters and the plot and everything about it. It’s just amazing.
