As everyone at school tries to move on with the aid of grief counselor April, Jo battles with her father over her friendship with Danny as she and Rico set out to prove Danny's innocence. In an effort to show that he is a normal kid, Danny and Jo set up a dinner between their two families, which goes awry when the adults drudge up past grievances. Meanwhile, Lacey struggles to cope with her emotions and bristles when former 'frenemy', Phoebe, attempts to bond with her.
Danny Desai is a charismatic 16-year-old with a troubled past who returns to his hometown after spending five years in juvenile detention.
Immediately branded an outcast, Danny attempts to reconnect with his two childhood best friends, Jo and Lacey, and to smooth over tensions with his mother Karen, whose socialite status plummeted after her son's imprisonment and the mysterious disappearance of her husband, Danny's father.
When a fellow student is found dead in her home, Danny instantly becomes the prime suspect and town spirals into a frenzy of suspicion and mystery. Jo and Lacey must decide if their childhood friend is unforgivable, or if he's really a victim being persecuted for his own twisted secrets.
