Part gothic, part realist, part coming-of-age- genres bend and blend together in this novel inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement. Set during the course of one sweltering summer in a fissured, Southern American town, boy meets boy across racial and class divisions. Opening with the tearing down of a Confederate statue, the narrative could not be more contemporary nor more relatable to teens and young adults. From the winner of the 2019 Ferro-Grumley Award for best LGBTQ fiction. Age 13+, Paperback 287pp
