Staff Reviews

This book will make you so angry.  Want to revolt.  Want world peace.  Want so many things.  It is a beautifully woven tale of a protest.  As a reader, you see all sides of the protest.  All the characters are struggling to achieve their strongest passions.  Finding your son.  Fighting for what you believe is right for the world.  Fun fact, the author had the original manuscript stolen.  When rewriting it, he focused on the characters that he really had passion for.  I believe this is one of the reasons why you will find this book so amazing. -Shane's March Staff Pick, 2016

“Yapa's debut novel is a raw orchestra of voices needing to be heard. Bringing to life the 1999 World Trade Organization protests in Seattle, all those present are both dedicated and at a loss: the organizers and protesters, the police and their chief, the delegates and politicians, and the young unintended participant who is searching for meaning, purpose, and hope amid the brutality. From the personal to the political, within a single fraught day the whole world is blown wide open. Yapa has captured the chaos -- and the beauty -- with both fierceness and heart.”
— Melinda Powers (E), Bookshop Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz, CA
