Jayrin never knew his father. Kamree’s father is in prison. And Aceson’s father is as good as gone, for all the attention and affection he spares his son. For these St. Louis teens, the hurdles of adolescence grow higher and harder to conquer by their fathers’ absences. Their separate stories intertwine in touching, surprising ways that lead to tragedy, awakening, and the possibility of redemption.
“I can understand why Jaer Armstead-Jones was so dedicated to this novel. It’s a striking story with a lot of potential to inspire both young adult readers and a general audience. There are harrowing moments, awkward scenes, imperfect conversations, which make the novel feel altogether real and gritty. In many ways, it felt there was no stone left unturned at the plot level here. It is, after all, a solid cultural story from many perspectives.”
