This amazing collaboration brings together two inspirational Black artists, NYT bestselling author Ashley Woodfolk and actress Lexi Underwood, for a story about the transformative power of art as protest and its capacity to change the world.
Jordyn has a plan--forget everything that happened at her old school and start fresh. Soon Jordyn falls in with a group of friends as passionate about social justice as she is, and she even begins to fall for Izaiah, a soccer star who loves art as much as she does.
But when an anonymous podcast called Tomcat Tea begins revealing dark, humiliating secrets that might not even be true about random students, ruining their reputations and in some cases their futures, her friends know they have to do something. Jordyn paints a mural in protest, starting a movement nationwide that encourages people to own up to their mistakes without shame.
But Jordyn has never wanted the spotlight. And as the momentum builds, so does the backlash, because Jordyn has a secret of her own, one she's not willing to share...and that a mysterious harasser online is threatening to expose.
