Avan plays Danny Desai, a sixteen year-old troubled boy who tries reconnecting with two childhood friends upon his return from being jailed for five years. Seeing that he murdered his aunt when he was eleven, he is quickly fingered as the prime suspect when a classmate is found murdered in her home.
Not only is Danny shunned by his classmates and the community, but his mother struggles to deal with how she fits into their hometown what with being a new widow.
Jo and her former best friend Lacey are also struggling. Neither wants to be known as a murderer's best friend, both have found new friends, and Danny returns wanted things to be like they were when they were kids.
Only four episodes into this new show and I'm hooked! I love the mystery mixed with your typical angsty teen drama.
