About 'A' (WHAT THE BLACK GIRL FOUND WHILE SEARCHING FOR GOD)

16-year-old ‘A’ is at war, battling herself and the world around her. She takes comfort in her relationship with God, her patient and compassionate friend who offers ‘A’ stillness and a listening ear. But just as she thinks she’s finally come to understand her own existence, God goes missing leaving ‘A’ to confront an antagonistic Narrator whose true identity may lead her to the peace she so desperately hopes to find.
