When We Was Fierce by e.E. Charlton-Trujillo. 400 p. Candlewick Press, August 9, 2016. 9780763679378.
Publisher synopsis: In an endless cycle of street violence and retribution, is there any escape? A powerful verse novel by e.E. Charlton-Trujillo.
I really enjoyed Fat Angie a few years ago and keep meaning to look up Ms. Charlton-Trujillo's earlier work. I'm also blown away by her commitment to bring books to at-risk youth through her non-profit, Never Counted Out.
