Entendre is a love story set in a NJ suburb. The two main characters reunite at a local hangout years after last seeing one another. Through a series of reflections their connection is explained, as well as the journey back to each other later in life. Entendre combines the introspection of a memoir with the imagination and character building typical of young adult fiction; all with poetic intermissions along the way. Exploring themes of growing pains, love, mortality, and race, Entendre masterfully contributes a new layer to the African American male narrative.
