Four Three Two One

Courtney Stevens

Stevens’ (Dress Codes For Small Towns, 2017) latest is an original and captivating coming-of-age story of trauma and resilience. Although it’s been a year since four teens survived a bus bombing in New York City, they still have secrets and guilt about that awful day. One of the teens, Golden “Go” Jennings makes an impulsive decision to gather the survivors and head to New York City where they’ll board an art installation made from the charred remains of the bus. She hopes this will lead to some type of resolution. But uniting the four teens unleashes conflicting emotions of anger and forgiveness as they each relive that fateful day.
