When Victor, a young man adrift after his mother’s death, decides to head into Seattle to sell weed, he is unprepared for the scene of protesters. Trying to fill a void, he is quickly swept up in the moment after meeting John Henry, a charismatic former preacher, and King, a woman who torn between violence and nonviolence. A stunning debut novel set in 1999 amid the WTO protests in Seattle that explores humanity and the degrees of compassion humans can choose to act upon or ignore. Will highly recommend this novel! ~Teresa Steele
