Suicide should have been the answer for Ty Winston to get out of his abusive relationship with his father. After the failed attempt he is sent off to live with his estranged Chance family in Denver, Colorado, who seem to have problems of their own. Second Chance is a sixteen year old trying to find his biological father, a task made difficult from his mother's past promiscuous behavior. Love is fighting for everyone to accept his biological father, the only man who has stepped to the plate to take on the responsibility. The twenty-something Hope Chance does not want to grow up and their mother, Ankh is more interested in the boys learning about their African roots and finding ways to send her other son to college than attending to her sons' every need. In the story that combines some of the favorite characters from the original Never Too Much, Worth Fighting 4 & and the cult classic Hold On Be Strong, Imes demonstrates why it's not easy being a teen.
