Liam is a fourteen-year-old graffiti artist living in project housing in Minneapolis with his single mother and three younger siblings. When Liam's estranged older brother coerces him to tag a graffiti symbol for a rival gang, Liam's life is threatened. Due to his apathetic attitude in the classroom and on the baseball field, Liam's private-school scholarship is also threatened. His mother decides to send him to Lake Michigan for the summer to live with her best friend, Kat, a sculptor and art teacher, Liam soon delves into the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Pablo Picasso, and his own personal aesthetics. He's encouraged to consider his art seriously and how it might contribute to a greater community. Having to decide between staying with Kat and returning home to his siblings who need him, Liam's story inspires him to reinvent himself for the better. *This book may have remainder mark*
