A string of burglaries on a quiet cul-de-sac exposes hidden racial tensions in a new novel by Rachel Louise Snyder. In "What We've Lost Is Nothing," Snyder explores the challenges navigated in neighborhoods perched between areas of affluence and poverty, and the clash between community values and personal fears when trauma strikes. She talks with Kojo about how her own life experience helped shape her first novel.
