This week on the Butler Bookshelf you will find The Cost of Knowing by Brittany Morris. Morris tells the story of 16-year-old Alex Rufus. Alex tries to lead a normal life and be the best version of himself. However, his psychic abilities hinder him. Knowing what’s going to happen before it does makes him anxious and prevents him from living an ordinary life. And when Alex receives a vision of his younger brother’s imminent death, he must race against time, face his past, and discover what it means to be a Black man in America.
