message 1: by Amy (new) - rated it 5 stars

Amy | 9053 comments Outstanding! 5 star! Top Ten, and probably for a decade!

Unbelievably well done! Compelling, powerful. Truth that needs to be told! Angie Thomas does it again! Manages to teach through fiction that is accessible, powerful, and probably is the truth.

A perfect read for those, especially young people. who really want to understand the experience of inequity in black experience. Stars a 16 year old girl, a rapper, an instant superstar, who needs to speak her truth. The book is her coming to figure out what that is and who she is. Its a sensation and I nearly cried several times.

For those who care about such things, I am cross-posting this to the Black Lives Matter tag, and the Poll Ballot tally tag for Civil Rights.
