“This is YA at the highest level of intensity! Kudos to Kosoko Jackson for crafting a novel with gay characters of color that is about neither being gay nor being of color. James and Tomas are teen boys in Kosovo as it begins to implode. Their budding romance is caught in the violence of war, and their courage and loyalty are tested beyond the scope of normal teenage endurance. These characters will melt your heart as you race to the cataclysmic ending. A Place for Wolves is a welcome answer to the need for diverse books and outstanding YA literature.”

Description

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe meets Code Name Verity in this heartbreaking and poignant historical thriller.

James Mills isn't sure he can forgive his parents for dragging him away from his life, not to mention his best friend and sister, Anna. He's never felt so alone.

Enter Tomas. Falling for Tomas is unexpected, but sometimes the best things in life are.

Then their world splits apart. A war that has been brewing finally bursts forward, filled with violence, pain, and cruelty. James and Tomas can only rely on each other as they decide how far they are willing to go--and who they are willing to become--in order to make it back to their families.
