Boys and Girls Screaming

By (author): Kern Carter

When Ever’s father passes away suddenly, she is devastated. Not long after that, her mom has a stroke and Ever’s anguish becomes almost too much for her to handle. That’s when she gets the idea to form a group she calls Boys and Girls Screaming. Along with her brother, Jericho, and her best friend, Candace, Ever wants to bring together kids from their school who have suffered trauma so they can share their stories and begin to heal.

Although the other teens find solace in the group, Ever tumbles further into depression until she reaches a breaking point. As the group learns the true source of Ever’s pain, they jump into action to help her find a way out.

Boys and Girls Screaming tells the story of a generation of teens finding the support they need to process their trauma in their own ways.

“Carter effectively captures the sometimes-arrogant adolescent voices of his characters, taking readers down the tortured paths of thought that teens often travel. … Boys and Girls Screaming leaves readers ultimately hopeful that connecting and speaking out can help young people begin to deal with trauma.”
– Wendy Phillips

“Kern Carter’s YA novel Boys and Girls Screaming is a thoughtful mix of empathy, entertainment and emotion
– Ashly July

“Through this work, readers learn about the sticky nature of trauma. … A thought-provoking read about the pain involved in healing childhood trauma.”
