Book Trailer Thursday: Air

“Putting two feet of air between you and the ground feels like being a super hero,” Grey, the daredevil protagonist of Ryan Gattis’ upcoming Air (Adaptive), marvels. Reeling from his mother’s murder, separation from his siblings, and recent relocation to Baltimore, Grey falls in with a covert crowd of stunt riders, BASE jumpers, and social activists. “Trayvon Martin. Michael Brown. Akil Williams. And thousands more you never even heard of,” Grey cries amid wailing sirens and revving engines, “. . . We fly for them.” Publishing next Tuesday, December 6, Gattis’ first foray into YA is a stirring blend of “political conversations, strong, complex characters . . . and crackling action,” writes Booklist reviewer Heather Booth. This release—and its review, linked above—are not to be missed.
