R. Kikuo Johnson
Adult Fiction JOHNSON
Summary: Exciting new talent R. Kikuo Johnson has created an intimate and compelling graphic novel-length drama of young people on the cusp of adulthood. With the end of high school just around the corner, two best friends in Hawaii, Shane and Loren, have grown distant. One night, however, Shane draws straight-A student Loren into an underworld of drugs, theft and violence. Will either one remain unscathed? This is at once an unsentimental portrait of the most awkward period of early adolescence and that rarest of things - a mature depiction of immature lives.
