Emil was a wanderer. A drifter with no friends, no family, and nowhere to call his own. For as long as he could remember, he had been traveling, running from those who sought to capture him. Their orders were simple, join or die. Emil planned to do neither, so instead he ran. For years he manged to remain unnoticed until one night everything changed.
From that moment on he swore his revenge. No longer would he run, but serve as the last light in a world covered in darkness.

“Life is a constellation, the individual moments in our lives seem so pointless sometimes; but when you look at the whole picture, you can see that those little moments formed memories.”
– Alex Rogers (I’m Only Human After All)
With his troubled past behind him and his older brother away for college, Alex finds himself searching for more. No longer does he wish to merely exist but also to belong. In Drifting, the sequel to I’m Only Human After All, Alex is taken under the wing of a more popular kid at school, Marcus, who introduces Alex to the underlying politics of the high school they attend.
With a newly found social life, Alex escapes from the monotonous pressures of life through frequent outings and late nights.Things seem to be fine until one critical moment changes everything, causing Alex to step back and contemplate the new path he has chosen.
Once again, Rogers draws from his personal experiences in Drifting, detailing his journey of coming into his own. In this openly expressive narrative, Rogers battles with peer-pressure, self-esteem, and self-acceptance as he re-tells his high school years.
