it was amazing

This novel was emotional, powerful, and eye opening for someone like me (a privileged white reader who's never had to suffer from racism or police brutality). Starr and her father Maverick were my favorite characters. Starr, despite believing she wasn't, was incredibly brave and Maverick had such a big heart. I loved the emphasis on both speaking up for injustices and community. I also liked how Starr's family (and her boyfriend) were so supportive of her. While this book is YA, I need anyone can benefit from reading it because, while Khalil is a fictional character, his fate is reality for far too many innocents.
