A young man searches for answers after the death of his brother at the hands of police in this striking debut novel, for readers ofThe Hate U Give.

When Marvin Johnson's twin, Tyler, goes to a party, Marvin decides to tag along to keep an eye on his brother. But what starts as harmless fun turns into a shooting, followed by a police raid.
