Staff Reviews


This book gives voice to the struggles of people of color. Starr's voice speaks louder than words on the page as you get sucked into this story that is a rush of reality. Comprised of friendships, family, and the belief in her the strength of her voice, Starr brings a YA take on racism and racial issues. 

— Zoe J., Tattered Cover Teen Advisory Board member

Listening to the audiobook brings this experience to a whole new level. A new dimension, really. Don't miss Bahni Turpin reading this! This is such an important book. It should be required reading for life in general. Or listening. Definitely listening.

— Kristen Gilligan, Co-owner, Tattered Cover

Description


Eight Starred Reviews #1 New York Times Bestseller

"Absolutely riveting " --Jason Reynolds

"Stunning." --John Green

"This story is necessary. This story is important." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Heartbreakingly topical." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A marvel of verisimilitude." --Booklist (starred review)

"A powerful, in-your-face novel." --The Horn Book (starred review)

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.
