Purple Heart City
by Taylor Gruenloh
Nobody has seen Daniel in eighteen months. When he suddenly returns home, hoping to pick life up where he left it, he finds a family that is slow to forgive him. He also finds a community that is tired and haunted by a past of having nuclear waste illegally dumped in its creeks and backyards.
When the world around you is designed to keep you tired and sick, how do you find the energy to fight?
