I didn’t even realize that this was a young adult novel initially. Angie Thomas gives Starr so much voice and captures exactly what a young black teen deals with in this current time of Black Lives Matter. This novel gets to the heart of how hard it is every day for Black people, by allowing the reader to experience racial profiling, police killings, economics, and justice for the voiceless, all through Starr’s eyes.
This was an amazing book, it was really powerful, and it felt like you were inside the mind of Starr. Totally recommend!
This book was amazing! Couldn’t stop reading once I started!
Loved this book. Important read.
I specifically think this would really benefit for white people! As a white person myself it really helped me have a look what it’s like for black people. I am now strongly interested in this subject and use my privilege to stick up for POC.
Great book! The author knew how to deliver a message in times when we needed a story like this!
I read it during the summer and I absolutely loved it. I couldn’t put it down. Can’t wait to see if the movie is as good as the book.
