Older tweeted that it “is explicitly a protest novel, deals directly with state violence, school to prison pipelines…and fighting back. Because these are the times we live in, and I believe in literature that looks these times in the face and speaks truth. And you can’t tiptoe towards justice.” He’s also said it “deals with mental health” and that “there may or may not be a techshaper.”
I desperately hope Anika Noni Rose returns for the audiobook. In the meantime, check out the novella Ghost Girl in the Corner.
