  • Criss Cross

    Criss Cross follows the lives of four fourteen-year-olds in a small town. Each at their own crossroads, this ensemble cast explores new thoughts and feelings in their quest to find the meaning of life and love. In thirty-eight brief chapters, this poetic, postmodern novel experiments with a variety of styles: haiku, song lyrics, question-andanswer dialogue, and split-screen scenarios.
