I really liked this book! The short chapters from multiple perspectives made it easy and quick to read--definitely a good one to suggest to the more hesitant reader--as well as allowed for a more thorough exploration of discrimination both personal and structural.

Narrated by a full cast. When the principal of Promise School is shot and killed in his office, the rest of the school sees JB, Trey and Ramón as likely suspects given their proximity in the detention room next door, circumstantial evidence, and mostly because of their school "reputations." In the boys' attempts to figure out what happened and clear their names, readers are kept on their toes as to who the real suspect is. Details unspool about motivations, other parties, and the current state of the school. The full-cast performance will keep listeners tuned in.… (mere)
