Fatal robberies are not uncommon in Aurora’s neighborhood, but this one was different. This one was committed by family. Though life before this wasn’t easy—life in the 9th Ward never is—at least she could focus on fine-tuning her already-accomplished piano skills and getting into college with a scholarship. Now the pressure of deciding whether to go to the police or stay quiet is affecting her schoolwork and her familial ties. It has been made perfectly clear: family doesn’t snitch. But with the family of the victims and the police getting closer, Aurora has got to do something. A Quiet Storm is a nuanced look at the roots of cyclical violence; with tenderness and fully fleshed-out characters, it stands as a testament that violent crime is not always so black and white. –Amber Love
