Powerful, wrenching. -JOHN GREEN, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Turtles All the Way Down Raw and gripping. -JASON REYNOLDS, New York Times bestselling coauthor of All American Boys A must-read! -ANGIE THOMAS, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Hate U Give Raw, ...captivating, and undeniably real, Nic Stone joins industry giants Jason Reynolds and Walter Dean Myers as she boldly tackles American race relations in this stunning New York Times bestselling debut, a William C. Morris Award Finalist. Justyce McAllister is a good kid, an honor student, and always there to help a friend--but none of that matters to the police officer who just put him in handcuffs. Despite leaving his rough neighborhood behind, he can't escape the scorn of his former peers or the ridicule of his new classmates. Justyce looks to the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for answers. But do they hold up anymore? He starts a journal to Dr. King to find out. Then comes the day Justyce goes driving with his best friend, Manny, windows rolled down, music turned up--way up, sparking the fury of a white off-duty cop beside them. Words fly. Shots are fired. Justyce and Manny are caught in the crosshairs. In the media fallout, it's Justyce who is under attack. Vivid and powerful. -Booklist, Starred Review A visceral portrait of a young man reckoning with the ugly, persistent violence of social injustice. -Publishers Weekly
