Good kings bad kings: A novel

Good kings bad kings: A novel is the 2012 winner of the PEN/Bellwether Prize for Socially Engaged Fiction, a prize that was created to promote fiction that addresses issues of social justice and the impact of culture and politics on human relationships.

This book takes us into the lives of a group of typical teenagers―alienated, funny, yearning for autonomy―except that they live in an institution for juveniles with disabilities. Each chapter gives us a glimpse at a different person using his or her own voice and dialect.
