Melissa and A.J. Leon On Misfit Inc. Changing The World

Melissa and A.J. Leon were doing everything right….until it all fell apart. Four days before their wedding!

High-school sweethearts, Melissa had become a much-loved teacher in Spanish Harlem and A.J. was a rising star in one of the world’s leading consulting firms. But, along the way, A.J. had become a shell of who he really was. And, both of them were feeling the pain.
