Description


Midwestern high school seniors and swim teammates Alli and Brandon are the perfect couple, enjoying their final months of high school and making big plans for the future. When a horrific school shooting sparks a national movement, Alli gets involved with protests in support of gun control legislation, while Brandon defends his pro-gun beliefs and stays on the sidelines. These shifting priorities lead Alli and Brandon to question not only each other but their worldviews, as they begin to stand up for something bigger than themselves for the first time.

"I really like the premise that lefties and righties find a way to come together on the school shootings issue ... 'Crossing Lines' has an important, relevant theme with a solution that helps its readers. We are so horribly polarized that a book about the two sides coming together to solve crucial problems is very welcomed."
-David Aretha, award-winning author
"Malala Yousafzai and the Girls of Pakistan"

"As graduation nears and high school seniors Alli and Brandon explore a deepening romance, shocking news of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooting makes them realize they're on opposite sides of the gun-control divide. With a caring respect for differing values that are equally sincere, 'Crossing Lines' puts faces and feelings on a key piece of America's polarization-and shows us how we can find our way through."
-Doug Wilhelm, author, "The Revealers"; "Street of Storytellers"
