Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A stomach-knotter. It’s one of those tales that ties you up, turns you inside-out, wrings you like a wet cloth. Desmond Hall leaves us no choice but to root for Frankie Green…Take note—Hall is a hurricane of a writer.” Jason Reynolds, author of Long Way Down
“Memorable and unmissable.” Courtney Summers, author of Sadie
