Nick just wants to replace the TV his sister accidentally broke before their foster parents find out. To repay the debt, the sixteen-year-old has to steal bikes, break them down and rebuild them to sell. But the debt and the violence keep growing. Even Nickâ€™s own beloved fixed-gear bikeâ€”the fixie he built with his dadâ€”is up for grabs. Â Â Â Should Nick recruit younger â€œruntsâ€ to do his dirty work? Should he find a way to give back the bike of the cute girl at the diner now that he sort of likes her? And how can Nick protect his little sister from the creepy guy with the shades?
