📖Recommend for Grades 8 and up📖
by Mark Oshiro
Life isn't easy for Moss being a black gay teen who has panic attacks. Life seems to be getting better after he meets Javior, and a mutual interest begins. When metal detectors and a police presence are brought to Moss's school he and his friends are outraged. They decide to protest these changes, with help from the community. A protest gone wrong leads to even more hurt and even death.
Parts of this story may anger and frustrate readers, but in a way that this book should as many actions that take place in this book are unjust. Teens who feel the actions of Moss, his friends and community are a little out there should remember those taken by the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
