Staff Reviews

This book impacted me as much as Michelle Alexander's The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness.

— Pamela

This powerful book about the aftermath of a white cop killing an unarmed black teenage boy helps show the ingrained racism and inhumanity we can have (like does it matter if the boy killed was a drug dealer or gang member? Does that make his life any less worthy?) and highlights the reverberations through a community that just can't take any more. Trauma, families, friendships, interracial relationships, stereotypes, teenage fun - this book tackles it all with a teenage voice full of warmth, fear, love, and quiet courage.
