High school senior Miles Parker is an aspiring vegan with a bit of a violent streak. Miles also has a major-league arm, but walked away from sports when his dad abandoned him. Living alone, Miles searches for a new identity through the rangefinder of his vintage Zorki camera. War rages overseas and threatens to break out closer to home. Inspired by two free-thinking teachers and a reclusive artist, Miles and his brainy sidekick Bird handle the return of the draft, complex relationships, and hometown haters with creativity and humor. The Zorki Chronicles is a coming-of-age novel whose quirky characters make a stand for the new counterculture.
