    Summary

    In Bono, Alabama, a southern town where nobody ever goes, Neil Josten is a blind boy who used to read and write stories. Now he tells them aloud for his friend to write down, but things are quick to turn bland where there’s no color to see. He finds comfort in religion, thinking God can give him his eyes.

    Then Andrew Minyard arrives in town in a dusty Impala and a crumpled suit, claiming he’s there to help Renee Walker take care of the church after the local priest’s death. Everyone soon starts wondering what his motives are and why he’d exile himself to a dead-end like theirs, mistrusting every word—but they’re after the wrong threat. Disillusioned and disappointed by religion, this lonely man of God came for a greater mission than preaching and blessing. He’s after something, and he might have just found it.

    The blind boy of the town will either be his salvation or damnation, and he’s not sure which one yet.

    Summary

    Seven years have passed since Otabek Altin and Yuri Plisetsky fled from the gang culture of their home town.

    Now, the Skins, the Angels, and the other gangs more or less work together to repair the damage that their violence wrought.

    But this peace is fragile, and when Otabek returns to town in disguise for the tourist-trap carnival "Volcano Sunday", a new sort of madness explodes.
