it was amazing
bookshelves: ya

A really moving, well-written and thought-provoking story, which delves into subjects such as race, violence, culture, identity and relationships. It is, at times, really difficult to read, because I felt confronted with a reality that I wish were different. For someone who has never been (at least to my knowledge) discriminated against because of the way I look, Dear Martin offered insight into the constant strain and struggle so many people face just in normal, day-to-day situations. The book was both disturbing and moving and though I thought Angie Thomas' The Hate U Give was very good, I think I liked this book, dealing with a similar situation, even better. It's the kind of story that should be read in school. Highly recommended!
