Riot Rundown


Today’s Riot Rundown is sponsored by Epic Reads.

Marcos Rivas wants to find love, but he’s sure as hell not getting it at home, where his mom’s racist boyfriend beats him up, or from his boys. But when Marcos is placed in a new after-school program for troubled teens with potential, he meets Zach, a theater geek whose life seems great on the surface, and Amy, a punk girl who doesn’t care what anyone thinks of her. These new friendships inspire Marcos to open up, and along the way, Marcos ultimately learns that bravery isn’t about acting tough and being macho; it’s about being true to yourself.
