Containing some mature language and sexual situations that would suit older teen readers, the book follows the friendship between protagonists Jeremiah Willis, who has escaped from the influence of his family to enroll in a public school, and Lucas Bradshaw who is an African American student and the subject of a nationwide manhunt following a school shooting in Virginia. As the two support each other in adapting to their new reality, they’re forced to work together to overcome corrupt cops, school bullies, and greedy realtors.
Author Michael Fields has crafted a highly engaging work of interpersonal drama which also delivers thriller, suspense, and mystery elements as the plot deepens and increases in complexity. Jeremiah and Lucas are well-developed heroes whom young adult readers are certain to relate to, for very different reasons depending on their background and character development. The emotional arc of the story is powerfully atmospheric and serves as a backbone to a well-plotted series of events that will keep readers racing from chapter to chapter to see the novel’s conclusion. The mature content is very appropriate to the realism of the piece and elevates the work to a level that both mature teens and adult readers are sure to appreciate.
