    Summary

    Nobody ever said it was easy.

    Alexander Hamilton has had a rough life, and he has the scars to prove it.
    It’s all in his case file. The fights he picked, mostly the ones he lost. The bruises and the broken bones. The nightmares. The screams. The way you can count each one of his ribs, lost under the sea of purple mottled across his chest. The twelve sleeping pills in one straight line.
    The ten placements in three years.
    He gets it. His social worker is at her wits end, with the kid who will just slip through the cracks, who will end up on the streets, behind bars or in the ground before he reaches eighteen. He wishes he could reassure her, tell her that he’s different, that he’s not just some statistic, that he’s a person who’s going to be more, who’s going to break the cycle of violence upon violence. But he can’t lie between gritted teeth. He doesn’t have it in him.

    You can't fix his kind of broken.
