Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: One of the few black kids on his Brighton Beach block, Titus "Crisp" Crespo was raised by his white mother and his Russian grandparents. He has two legacies from his absent father, Mo: his weird name and his brown skin. Crisp has always been the odd kid out, but a fundamentally good kid, with a bright future. But one impulsive decision triggers a horrible domino effect--an arrest, no reason not to accompany his richer, whiter friend Glynnie on a visit to her weed dealer, and a trip onto his father's old home turf where he'll face certain choices he's always tried to avoid. As Detective Lex Cole unravels the clues from Crisp's night out, they both find that what you don't know about your past can still come back to haunt you.

    In A Map of the Dark? (2018), FBI agent Elsa Myers was assigned to search for a missing teenage girl. Ellis pivots this time, leaving agent Myers on the sidelines while her former colleague, Lex Cole, searches for a pair of missing teens. Crisp, a mixed-race boy who's on his way up in the world, and Glynnie, a white girl trying to be edgy while leaning on her privilege, are in way over their heads in a tale that illustrates all that families can be, good and bad. Without resorting to stereotypes, Ellis deftly shows just how different the stakes are for kids who supposedly live in the same world but who face very different obstacles and possibilities. This thoughtful entry in the Searchers series will satisfy fans of the previous work as well as those who enjoy a well-crafted look at New York's underbelly. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
