    [synopsis] => With echoes of Marieke Nijkamp and Jason Reynolds, acclaimed author Marie Myung-Ok Lee's stunning YA homage to Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men tells the tragic story of a Korean American teen who fights to protect herself and her neurodivergent older brother from a hostile community.
	Moving beyond the quasi-fraternal bond of the unforgettable George and Lenny from Of Mice and Men, Hurt You explores the actual sibling bond of Georgia and Leonardo da Vinci Daewoo Kim, who has an unnamed neurological disability that resembles autism. The themes of race, disability, and class spin themselves out in a suburban high school where the Kim family has moved in order to access better services for Leonardo.
	Suddenly unmoored from the familiar, including the support of her Aunt Clara, Georgia struggles to find her place in an Asian-majority school where whites still dominate culturally, and she finds herself feeling not Korean "enough." Her one pole star is her commitment to her brother, a loyalty that finds itself at odds with her immigrant parents' dreams for her, and an ableist, racist society that may bring violence to Leonardo despite her efforts to keep him safe.
	Hurt You is a deep exploration of family, society, and the bond between siblings and reflects the reality that people with intellectual disabilities are far more likely to be the victim of a violent crime, not the perpetrator. 
	"Hurt You is a big, brave story of 'otherness' juxtaposed with 'extreme otherness,' and friendship under fire. The issues, in their sheer number and intensity, could have been taken over the top by a less accomplished storyteller, but Marie Myung-Ok Lee's protagonist, Georgia Kim, tells it seamlessly. If you're not swept away by Georgia's tough and completely honest loyalty, read the book again." 
	"Hurt You reads like something written by a master's hand, a powerful and heartbreaking story that resonates with the force of love and legend." 
	"Marie Myung-Ok Lee wonderfully recasts Of Mice and Men for a new America. Lee is a brave and insightful storyteller, and her words of pain-and hope-seep into our souls." 
	"I learned so much from these pages. Marie Myung-Ok Lee's timely and critical work recasts Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men as Korean American siblings and pushes much-needed conversations on neurodiversity, racism, and what families-and communities-owe to each other." 
	"This contemporary take on Of Mice and Men tackles numerous heavy issues, including racism, ableism, gun control, and the challenges of caring for a significantly disabled family member, but offers no easy answers…Devastating."
