one of the toughest locations on the east side of Detroit, the Bishops hang out at a dilapidated high school building they call 8 Mile High. The Bishops gather in their headquarters here to tally their scores for their human hunting game. The Bishops not only terminate grown-ups for sport and bragging rights, but eliminating the older generation ensures that the Children of Detroit (C.O.D.) will have ultimate authority over their forgotten city. The Bishops’ main conflict is with the Minocks, a group of west side of Detroit boys and girls who want to save the adults by helping them escape to the 7-3-4, which is a suburban safe haven for survivors of the plague. Brixxon Aurelia is a Minock on the run. She crosses paths with the "enemy" Bishop, Laith, desperate to find her father who's been transported to the 7-3-4. Under C.O.D. law, teenagers are not allowed to leave the city. Despite conflicting ideals, opposites attract as Laith agrees to help Brixxon. Is it worth it for Laith to risk his life? Will Brixxon and Laith survive this deadly journey? KIDS of 8 MILE HIGH is book one in this YA trilogy.
