In this third volume of the Surviving the City series, Miikwan and Dez are in their final year of high school. Poised at the edge of the rest of their lives, they have a lot to decide on. But grief and anger take precedence over their plans when the remains of 215 children are found at a former residential school in British Columbia. Miikwan and Dez struggle with feelings of helplessness in the face of injustice. Can they find the strength to channel their frustration into action towards a more hopeful future?
