Series Name: Cap Central
Jair Nobles still remembers how great it felt. After he and Zander Peterson rescued two girls at a party that got out of hand, other students were full of admiration. Acceptance felt great. But the attention was short-lived. His old life hadn't been happy, but at least it felt familiar. Looking back, he could remember one bright moment. The night everyone thought he was a hero. He would do anything to feel like that again. Anything.
Capital Central High School, or Cap Central as the students like to call it, is in the northeast quadrant of Washington, D.C. Any urban school faces broad challenges, and Cap Central is no different. But some tight-knit juniors meet the difficulties head-on with courage, friendship, determination, and hard work.
