Aria's life has been full of tragedy for as long as she can remember. As a child, she survived a car accident that claimed the lives of her father and her baby sister. As her father was trying to talk to her, she plugged her ears and pretended she couldn't hear him as he passed away...

A resident of Atlanta, Aria has dedicated her life to teach literacy to girls who may not otherwise gain an education. She lives in a rough part of town with her best friend Rochelle, which troubles her boyfriend Dwayne. Aria has worked hard to build a stable life for herself that she can be proud of.

But now she has a secret that she's not ready to share with anyone: she is pregnant. Maybe.

So begins the twists and turns that occur as Aria discovers if she will be a mother, but more importantly, who she really is.
