Finger Guns

Finger Guns is a deceptively brave story about kids, who have the strange ability to point their fingers at people and—bang—manipulate their emotions, but it is not a story for kids. 

A young white kid runs around blasting people with a finger gun that makes them powerfully angry. A young girl of color fires a calm gun to stem the chaotic tide. These two become friends—support each other, learn from each other, and even hurt each other, in equal measure. Finger Guns is a book about emotional maturity, what it takes to grow up, how few of us actually do, and the importance of harnessing compassion in an age of selfishness.


"Finger Guns #1 has swept its way into my heart. It is a smart and heart-filled look into the emotional cravings and needs of teens. Reminding me of my youth and my personal refuge in music, much like protagonist Wes, I can be sure that most people will find this story relatable."

But Why Tho?

"Finger Guns #5 takes a captivating concept and grounds it so firmly in reality in a way that makes it feel real and as though it has serious consequences. The characters have amazing story arcs. The ending is bittersweet and just a bit hopeful. It’s a very satisfying read."

Major Spoilers

"This is a strongly written and realized coming of age story, made more original with its slight stray into fantasy and science fiction. Touching, delicate, brutal, unforgettable."
