Scotty Madaki is a teenage artist and musical prodigy who lives abroad most of his life until his father relocates to New York City. He is gifted, talented, and trained by his father to challenge the boundaries of conventional roles and thinking and to esteem his family’s diversity. At his new school, Scotty quickly connects with other music and art lovers who draw him into New York’s art and graffiti scene. Scotty is coming of age in a world filled with technological marvels but with very few solid answers to life’s most persistent questions: Why am I here? What’s this all about? The pace of the story accelerates as Scotty’s rather “innocent” existence collides with shadowy forces that put his very survival in question.
