EVERYONE’S been talking about this debut YA novel, and for good reason. This heartbreaking, yet infuriating story manages to tackle racism in its macro and micro forms, police brutality, Black Lives Matter, and class in a powerful and authentic way. The characters in this book are complex with their own unique histories, and each chapter feels like a sucker punch. Angie Thomas makes the reader step into Starr’s shoes, into Starr’s life, and ask themselves what they would do if they were in Starr’s place. It’s a perspective changing novel, and by far one of the best that will be published this year.
