For Kalvin Barnes, the only thing close to the rush of playing the knockout game is watching videos of the knockout game. Creating the right video could make the world take notice.
Erica’s the new girl with a good camera and a filmmaker’s eye. Kalvin believes he can open her eyes to the power he sees in the knockout game…if she’ll close her eyes to everything else.
For a while, Erica immerses herself in the rush of creativity. Then comes the KO that forces her eyes open. No one wins the knockout game.
Coretta Scott King Award honoree G. Neri has created an unflinching novel that’s hard to read and impossible to put down.
