WHITE FLIGHT is a YA urban title that features 16 year-olds Daryl and Alex, two teens from diverse backgrounds, that have  been friends for almost half their life, until one fateful day shattered it forever, due to the retribution of a street thug who saw justice in a much different way then either of the two young friends were raised to ever know.  Now only one of the pair still

remains, filled with remorse and guilt from the unknowingly fatal advice he gave that ended his friend’s life, wondering if can he step up to the plate and be as brave as his friend was.  For both were eye-witnesses to a targeted execution.

Please welcome the talented and much-acclaimed author, Christopher Paslay, as he reads verses from this newly engaging title that can cause readers to experience a powerful impact from the experience it brings when youth read its text.
