The Coldest Winter Ever is a storm that blows through your life and leaves you with nothing.

Winter Santiaga is rich and beautiful, and proud of it. Whatever she wants, her daddy Santiaga will provide. Then on her 17th birthday, all that starts to change. Her designer clothes and shoes: gone. The red Mercedes-Benz: gone. Winter’s mom and dad: gone. All she has left is herself, and she’ll do anything to get back on top. But the streets of New York are extra cruel during the Coldest Winter Ever.
