    Mocha and More: I Am the Weapon by Allen Zadoff

    Boy Nobody is the perennial new kid in school. He shows up in a new high school, in a new town, under a new name - just long enough for someone to die. Mission accomplished. When The Program assigns him to the mayor of New York City, things change and Boy Nobody wants out.

    We meet at the Starbucks on Cherry and your first drink is on us. The first 7 registered teens to check in at the Youth Service desk get a free copy of the book. Heads up: This book has a suggested reading audience of 7-12th grade.
