""One hit or quit." That's the rule of the TKOs boxing club, led by Kalvin, the "Knockout King" -- who's also 16-year-old Erica's new boyfriend. At first, Erica is thrilled by the adrenaline rush of filming the TKOs as they challenge each other to brutally punch out random strangers. But their actions soon explode out of control, even as Kalvin's control over Erica grows stronger. Loaded with ripped-from-the-headlines drama, Knockout Games is harsh, intense, and thought-provoking. For a more hopeful but equally gripping story of urban teens trying to untangle loyalty and violence, check out Jason Reynolds' When I Was the Greatest." Teen Scene October 2014 newsletter
