This book was absolutely fantastic! I read most of it in one day and I'm glad I did. I connected with the characters on a spiritual level! I cried in this book, it was that good. I definitely recommend this to any lover of The Hate U Give or anyone who cares about what's happening in America regarding race today.


I'm most likely going to do a video on this, so here are the bare bones of my thoughts: this was a very thoughtful, emotional book. But it was not well written. Being Canadian, I'm not as in on a lot of these shooting stories nor am I provided with the information in the same way others get it and this really opened my eyes. Still, there were parts of this book that reminded me of my Wizard of Oz script minus all the stage direction. I have a lot more to say and I'm quite muffled and tired from staying up late. Please stay tuned for a video review or discussion.
