Loss is defined as the feeling of grief one experiences when they have lost something or someone of great value. But grief can mutate and transform into something deadly, something much more toxic. It can grow in size and swallow someone whole, changing them from the person they once were into someone of a polar body. And as Hiro struggles to handle the death of his brother Tadashi, he proves to be a danger even to himself though his unhealthy coping methods. Recovery is desperately needed, and readily provided by willing friends. But it doesn't seem as if any offer in the world could make up for the night of the fire. And how can you help someone move on with their life...when they don't even want to live anymore?
Hiro was so much like her. He was stubborn, he was intelligent, he was bright. A spitting replica, if not just for personality. So could he really be blamed for what he had chosen to do? He had motives; of couse...people always do. But his motives were good ones, surely? For him, at least. For others it was not suffice to say. For others, this whole thing would be a living nightmare. One they could not possibly wake up from. And for a young boy, with his whole life in front of him, it might even be an ordeal that he would not survive.
The story takes place in 1952, in a small town in New Mexico. Keith Cogain, a half-Korean young man, is bullied because of his mother's heritage. In part because we're in the middle of the Korean war, but mostly still because white kids like picking on colored kids.
He finds his outlet in street racing, and takes great pride in generally being better at it than his bully and rival, Jimmy Parker. When his race car, skillfully engineered by Hunk and Pidge, winds up in Jimmy's hands, he makes a bet that could potentially make him live his greatest nightmare. To leave his newly developed crush, Lance Martínez.
