Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.

Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil's name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

But what Starr does--or does not--say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

This book was so good, I could not put it down. The subject matter is very timely and I think it is important for people to read books like this in order to understand why groups like Black Lives Matter exist. Also, Starr is a very well-written character and I absolutely loved her family.

Inspired by the #BlackLivesMatter movement, this powerful debut novel is a must-read for everyone.
