The Confessional

“Power’s first novel powerfully combines timely story lines regarding illegal immigration, school violence, and racial tension.”

Publishers Weekly, Starred

Mexican guy. White guy. Classmates and enemies from across the border

and on each other's turf. Big fight. White guy wins. Next day, he's dead. Everyone's a suspect. Everyone's guilty of something.Does what you look like

or where you come from finally determine where your loyalties lie? Who's Us? Who's Them? Which side is your side? Is it Truth?Contemporary politics, the consequences of guys-being-guys, and questions about faith and personal responsibility pulse throughout the pages of this provocative, eloquent debut.
