Seventeen year old Valeri Johnson, or Val, or Ri is kind of in an awkward point in her life. In the middle of depression and somewhere close to peace of mind. Her mother died when she was young. Her father is in prison. she was adopted out to an abusive family. She listens to dark music. She is a school target. When she gets injured by an attempt hit-and-run, it's the last straw. She meets five faces she never thought she would ever meet. She falls for a certain someone. Their name? Did I forget to tell you it's the one and only Black Veil Brides?
