This is a story about what we stand for, and how that makes us who we are.
It’s a coming-of-age tale about a girl, a boy, a dog, a dam, a travel ban, an orange toddler, a political movement and the hip-hop guide to life. It’s a novel that confronts questions of privilege, identity, voice and influence in a post-truth world.
But most of all, it’s about the power of the stories we tell ourselves.
