How are the siblings related
21 July 2017 | by elvsgarfSee all my reviews

They all 3 have the same daddy but what about their moms. Cuz Nova talks like her mom is dead. But Charlie talks like her mom is alive. Im confused but other than that this show is great cant wait for the next episode. I feel bad for the son cuz he always seems angry. Its not anyone fault he did wrong and went to jail as they say in the 1st episode
