The Scapegracers by Hannah Abigail Clarke

A white background. Across the bottom is graphic a graphic of many books of varying shapes and sizes, all colored in dark gray, light gray, white, and purple. Across the top and centered, it reads "Exemplary Reads." There is a medium-thick dark gray font, and below that in a thin purple font it reads "The Scapegracers by Hannah Abigail Clarke""

Welcome to Exemplary Reads! In this series of posts, I create a reference log of books that I think do a really good job at particularly hard-to-define writing concepts, and then I'll explain why. Fair warning, some explanations will contain spoilers so read on at your own peril. This week, I discuss The Scapegracers by Hannah Abigail Clarke.
