From the Publisher:
Wishing he were spending his summer relaxing, drawing, and dating, Marcus worries about where things will end up as he drives along with his brother and a loaded gun on their way to their father's house.
It's the summer before senior year, and Marcus should be hanging out, filling his sketchbook, maybe asking a girl out for once. So why is he in a car with his brother, his brother's girl, and the pistol, headed straight toward his dad?
David Hernandez writes with striking lyricism and unfaltering poise. Suckerpunch marks the debut of a superb and important new literary talent.
