The Urban Promise Prep School prides itself on molding boys into responsible men, emphasizing discipline as the key to success. J.B., Ramón, and Trey are all students at this prestigious institution. Principal Moore is shockingly discovered to be murdered on school ground and the trio finds themselves as prime suspects. The 3 students must rally together, prove their innocence, and uncover the true killer before they face arrest.

The narrative structure, divided into parts dedicated to J.B., Trey, and Ramon, effectively introduces each character while exposing the biases present in the interrogations and interviews they face. These interactions reveal the flawed assumptions made about the boys due to their backgrounds, such as association with gangs or perceived violent tendencies. Overall, the book provides a gripping exploration of justice, prejudice, and the hidden complexities within a seemingly reputable institution
