This is a young adult book that is an excellent opening conversation about race relations that should be assigned reading in every American high school. The protagonist, Starr Carter, lives in two worlds: the tony, mostly white suburban prep school she attends in another town where her uncle lives -- a police officer who acted as a father figure while her father was in jail earlier in her childhood -- and her gritty urban neighborhood. These two worlds diverge when Starr witnesses the fatal police shooting of her best friend since childhood, Khalil, an unarmed black teenage boy. It is a well-written first-person narrative.… (mere)

Recommended: critically
For everyone.

Thoughts:
I always struggle with reviewing books that deal with an experience and perspective of life I don't have. I'm able-bodied, thin, and white. If I were a man and twenty years older, I'd be the epitome of Privilege in America. That said... this book feels necessary, sadly.

It's depressing how true this story is. Though it's fiction, it's really not, as this is a scenario we see over and over again in the United States, and is daily life for far too many people. The community banding together in the story is exactly what we need to keep doing. Ah, see, it's hard for me to write about this without it becoming about bigger issues than just the book...

...but again, that's why this book is necessary!

Limiting myself to just the story: it will tear your heart in two. It will teach you what not to say and do in racial contexts if you're someone with little exposure to other cultures (ahem, me, though I'm trying to change that). It will make you laugh and cheer and cry and rage. It will show you the wisdom of 2Pac. And, hopefully, it will tell you to get off your f*cking high horse and shout loudly and nonstop for the rights of everyone when they're being stomped on.

Fun middle grade fantasy. Has got a lot of elements of other fantasy that has been done before -- was looking for something more fresh.
