Every decision Bobby makes affects him and Zane. What is he going to do? When it comes down to it, will he report Katya? Will he decide to put up with an inconvenience to keep all the good stuff? But that inconvenience has turned into Hurricane Katya, who is out to destroy everything in her path. And that path heads right toward Zane and Bobby. What can Bobby do to save Zane? Will he be able to be strong enough to do the right thing? Will he risk losing his family, the mother, and sister that he always wanted?
