Intriguing book by a first time author who is from my neighborhood, which is what motivated me to pick up the book. Good story based on a true account of police brutality and torture in Chicago. The novel raises a number of thoughtful angles, particularly the strong desire of people in the neighborhood to have their normacy back. I thought the language was somewhat awkward, but the strength of the story propels the reader.

I thought the dueling perspectives of the neighborhood and the police force brought to light the ethical complications for both parties. With recent media attention focused on unnecessary policy force, this novel provides unique perspectives, historical accuracy with creative license, and context to apply to current events. Some of the language requires a dictionary, but can be an adult vocabulary lesson.
