As a young law student, Alexander Hamilton dreamed of fame and fortune. He had his life planned. One-year, five-year, ten-year plans, he had them all. Until his infant daughter, he hadn't known existed, came into his life. He continued law school with the baby in his arms and graduated with her by his side when she was a toddler.
Now, Lexi is four and Hamilton prepares to meet a new boss, the formidable George Washington. Nothing goes smoothly and Hamilton knows his dreams are crashing down. But his friends, Aaron Burr and Eliza Schuyler, and, of course, Lexi, keep him going, keep him chasing what he wants. But not just for himself anymore, but for Lexi, too. But failures pile up and he wonders if he ever can achieve his dreams. Just when he thinks, maybe--maybe!--he's getting life figured out, Hamilton's rival lawyer takes a job at the same firm as him.
One thing he always thought out of reach enters his life. A relationship. Can he balance fatherhood and a love life? Does he need it? His dreams have always changed, maybe that one could, too.

When Alexander Hamilton is kicked out of another foster home, he knows his chances of family and a decent future have ended. He's biding his time now until he turns 18 and can have his freedom.
George and Martha Washington have fostered for 15 years and have adopted a son, Lafayette. Hamilton knows at once that this is going to be another short-lived disaster. Washington is stern and unforgiving, at least in the eyes of the rash boy. It doesn't take Washington long to prove otherwise but Hamilton refuses to accept affection or trust. He pushes the buttons of his foster father and waits for the beating like all the others. Each time Washington gives him another chance.
At school, Hamilton struggles in the snooty atmosphere of private school but finds an unlikely friend in sickly James Madison. But Hamilton's birthday looms closer and he knows it'll all end the moment he turns 18.
With nothing to lose, Hamilton lets a petty fight with Lafayette escalate and flees before he is thrown out. Gone are the hopes of family and the college education the promised. He can't imagine that Washinton would accept him back now. But maybe Washington hadn't been lying. Maybe he could have a home.

What would it be like to have a soul mate? Someone who always accepts you? Someone who is always by your side? But what if you didn't get to pick who that person was? What if you forgot who you were and the things you loved?
Are soul mates a good thing? Growing up on a small island, Nathaniel had never heard of one. But when his troubled past sends him to the city, he discovers a world of pain thanks to such a person: his soul mate Clarence.
Two scientists have been searching for a cure for years and are getting close when the mysterious island boy lands in Lewis' hands. He is certain humanity can be saved if the boy can resist the third contact with his soul mate that would forever doom the two boys together. But Lewis' protege has his own plans and humanity as a whole could be lost forever.
