    Summary

    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.
