‘WARSONGS’ out now!
Simbarashe’s second installment of The Matadors, entitled WARSONGS, is now available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble!
In this latest chapter, we return to Verona at the tail-end of a harsh winter. It’s been three months since the notorious stabbing incident during the basketball game. One one side, Hewson and Lauren still run Crew, the hottest clique in school. On the other, Monty and the Freaks are still beating to their own drum. In between the two sides, Donica and Christian both find themselves on the same path to self-realization but with drastically different results. WARSONGS takes a devastating look at how quickly things can turn into chaos over the course of seven days.
Here’s a full synopsis:
It only takes seven days for everything to change in Verona. Battle lines have been drawn. The most exclusive clique of high school students are engaging in increasingly lethal war-games with the freaks. Love triangles expand into dangerous spider webs. The state basketball tournament is well underway and Verona finds itself at the center of a scathing political battle over the transfer of a star player from Lakeview High, only their most bitter rival. Dirty money may or may not determine the outcome of who reaches the state championship game. And in the middle of it all, Donica Pine is having the worst week of her life. In this exhilarating second-installment of ‘The Matadors’ series, ‘Warsongs’ is recalled through the eyes of the students themselves, and the result this time around is a very different portrait of Verona from the first novel. The students-whether they realize it or not-become foot soldiers in two very different social wars: the one happening within the walls of their school between the popular and hated, and the other ensuing outside with their crosstown rival, an inner-city school that has owned them in basketball for the past several seasons. In ‘Warsongs’, Verona has become a fractured, vulnerable place. Yes, it is an affluent place where you can have anything you want, but sometimes you don’t want what you ask for. Everyone is tested when a week of building tension culminates with the atom bomb of tragic events.
