Seventeen-year-old Stetson cares for nothing but survival, his car and being the first to grad HS.  He hasn't seen his mother in years and tries to keep a good distance from his alcoholic father, but when his mom dies suddenly and his father introduces him to a sister he never knew he had, Stetson finds himself discovering a side of himself he didn't know he still had.
