From #OwnVoices debut author duo Gilly Segal and Kimberly Jones comes a page-turning and timely story about two teenage girls—one black, one white—who only have each other to get through the violent race riots enveloping their city over the course of one night.
Lena and Campbell aren't friends.
Lena has killer style, an awesome boyfriend, and a plan. She knows she's going to make it big. Campbell, on the other hand, is just trying to keep her head down and get through the year at her new school.
When both girls attend the Friday night football game, what neither expects is for everything to descend into sudden mass chaos. Chaos born from violence and hate. Chaos that unexpectedly throws them together.
They aren't friends. They hardly even understand the other's point of view. But none of that matters when the city is up in flames, and they only have each other to rely on if they're going to survive the night.
Kimberly Jones is the former manager of the bookstore Little Shop of Stories and currently works in the entertainment industry.
Gilly Segal spent her college years in Israel and served in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). She is currently a lawyer for an advertising agency. Visit gillysegal.com.
Both authors live in Atlanta, Georgia.
