Homeless and runaway teens are becoming a huge part of the underground population in the U.S. According to research, "The National Runaway Switchboard estimates that on any given night there are approximately 1.3 million homeless youths living on the streets, in abandoned buildings, with friends or with strangers." (Homeless and Runaway Youth, 2013, NCSL) Some of these children runaway from violent and unstable home environments thinking that things will be better when they are on their own. Many of these children and teens leave home and find themselves in situations far more dangerous than their home life. In fact, some of them never make it home again or must endure unthinkable pain at the hands of predators. This is the reality for Jessica, Quintika, Justin, and Tommy. Each of them runaway from home with intentions of being successful on their own. They each have big dreams and high hopes that their lives will be better when they get away from their parents and their rules. However, they all quickly find out that the grass is rarely greener on the other side as they come face-to-face with Abaddon, The Devil. Now they must find the strength to defeat the devil, escape hell, and heal their Tortured Souls..... A Long Way from HOME!!!
