Facing inner demons

In this queer contemporary YA mystery, a nonbinary teen with autism realizes they must not only solve a 30-year-old mystery but also face the demons lurking in their past in order to live a satisfying life.

Author Maya MacGregor introduces their new mystery novel, about a boy facing his own demons from events in the past, while trying to solve a mysterious murder. Maya tells us about her own experiences of hate crimes that helped inspire her to write the novel, and she reads from a short section of The Half-Lived Lives of Sam Sylvester (Astra Young Readers).
