Book Trailer Thursday: Boxers & Saints

Breaking a complex story into two–a bloody conflict told via young protagonists on its opposing sides–and then putting it back together for a one-minute teaser couldn’t have been easy, but you wouldn’t know it from today’s BTT. The trailer for Printz winner Gene Yuen Lang’s simultaneously released companion graphic novels Boxers and Saints is simple in its approach, setting frames from the novels themselves to motion against a haunting soundtrack, with an appropriately awesome result.

Learn more about the making of Boxers and Saints and what the author hopes readers will learn from the books in Sarah Hunter’s Booklist interview.
