Meet Hector. Part cynic, part idealist, Louisiana-born Hector moves to Washington, D.C. for law school, where he fights demons of his past as he pursues his legal education. As 1L year carries on, Hector is increasingly drawn into the dark, evasive life of his late grandfather, Tom, who bears many similarities to Hector, and who died at the age of 30. As Hector learns about his grandfather’s life, his own life becomes perilously close to mirroring Tom’s tragic fate. Meet Emily. Confident and cool, Emily has had her life all mapped out since she was in grade school. At least, that is what she wants people to believe. Law school is just another box on her checklist as she works toward her desired future as a prosecutor. She soon learns that it won’t be as easy as she expected, and when she gets involved in a classmate’s ethical transgression, she finds her entire future—and her life—in jeopardy. Hector and Emily encounter friendships, romance, loss, and betrayal as they navigate their first year of law school against the backdrop of northeast Washington, D.C.
