Claire Wang is devastated when her parents send her away from her privileged life in Shanghai to go to school in Southern California. Her host sister, Dani De La Cruz, isn’t too excited either. As Claire explores life away from the control of her wealthy family, scholarship student Dani struggles to compete with her prosperous classmates. Intent on avoiding each other, Dani and Claire find their paths converging as they each reel from traumatic experiences. The award-winning author of Front Desk presents a compelling, empathetic exploration of rape culture, trauma, class, and solidarity.  Ages 14 and up. 

In conversation with Laurie Halse Anderson, bestselling author of books for young readers, teens and adults, including her memoir-in-verse, SHOUT, about surviving sexual assault and moderated by Sarah Enni, host of the First Draft podcast.
