Dear Martin
Dear Martin | Nic Stone
Raw, captivating, and undeniably real, Nic Stone joins industry giants Jason Reynolds and Walter Dean Myers as she boldly tackles American race relations in this stunning debut. Justyce McAllister is top of his class, captain of the debate team, and set for the Ivy League next year--but none of that matters to the police officer who just put him in handcuffs. He is eventually released without charges (or an apology), but the incident has Justyce spooked. Despite leaving his rough neighborhood, he can't seem to escape the scorn of his former peers or the attitude of his prep school classmates. The only exception: Sarah Jane, Justyce's gorgeous--and white--debate partner he wishes he didn't have a thing for. Struggling to cope with it all, Justyce starts a journal to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. But do Dr. King's teachings hold up in the modern world? Justyce isn't so sure. Then comes the day Justyce goes driving with his best friend, Manny, windows rolled down, music turned up. Way up. Much to the fury of the white off-duty cop beside them. Words fly. Shots are fired. And Justyce and Manny get caught in the crosshairs. In that media fallout, it's Justyce who is under attack. The truth of what happened that night--some would kill to know. Justyce is dying to forget.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️📖🎧2019-05-19

This book hit me directly in the feels. It poses all the hard questions and doesn‘t attempt to provide a neat ending with all the answers. This book needs to be in the hands of all black teens, especially young men. If you give a damn about black lives, then you should read it. And if you don‘t, you definitely need to read it and get a clue.

Reggie I listen to This American Life the podcast and one of their episodes is called The Birds and the Bees. It was about the important conversations you got when you were a kid. Kamau Bell is on there talking about how he was 8 and his mother asked him what he wanted for breakfast. He thought someone was dying because it wasn‘t his birthday. But that was the day she had the conversation of what it meant for his life, having the color of skin he had. 1mo

This was a great story. I was impressed with the flow and the ease by which the author conducting the dialogue. It helped when there were multiole characters.

Dear Martin is a story that stands on its own. With a strong cast of characters and internal debate with the main character, i found it to be an eye opening story about race relations in the u.S.

A sneaky book! I began annoyed with Justyce, who was just too nice. But the way that scene unfolded just captivated me. From then on, the struggles w/subtle & overt racism gripped me harder & harder. Every time, my heart hurt a little more. At the climax of the book, I actually felt gut-punched & had to put the book down for a while. A couple of times, I found myself crying. Some parts felt a little unrealistic but I was still completely into it.

Got my hands on this shorty, taking a break from the pedophilia of Lolita and The Real Lolita. I am 9 chapters in and loving it. It helps that it falls in that realm of social justice that I've acquired a taste for and that Angie Thomas recommends it.

QUESTION for parents/teachers...or really anyone who has an opinion or insight in the matter.
I picked up these two books for my almost 13 year old son (he is reading at a 12th grade level). The subject matter of Dear Martin is pretty deep but something I think his eyes should be open to BUT there is cursing and the N word in it. Would you cover the words, have a talk about the words, or wait til he is older to read it?

jpmcwisemorgan Not a parent or teacher - I feel like this is an opportunity for you to discuss this with your son. He‘s probably already heard at least the cursing. Covering up words makes it seem like there‘s something to hide and sometimes when parents make a big deal about things, whatever it is becomes a bigger deal than it really might be. 4mo
TrishB I found my daughter reading my GoT books at 13....I‘m very liberal and think the sooner they can discuss these issues the better! But I don‘t know your son and don‘t like to tell anyone how to parent. (edited) 4mo
jpmcwisemorgan And reading a book with deep or important content and having you to talk to can be really good. I think a lot of parents miss out on those opportunities because they don‘t read or pay attention to what they‘re kids are reading. 4mo
See All 17 Comments
jpmcwisemorgan But to the point made by @TrishB you know your son best and what he can handle. 4mo
bridge12 I recently had this discussion, most studies show that race discussions should probably start around 3-8 y/o. What age do black kids get these terms thrown their way, or are aware they are treated differently. So if black/brown kids are aware of this stuff at your kids age it‘s “fair” for your kid to know as well 🤷🏼‍♀️ Granted I don‘t have children and your mom instinct is much greater than mine. Either way, a good resource is westories.org 4mo
JacqMac I say talk about it. My kids were also advanced readers. I found that if the subject of a book was too heavy for them they would bail on their own anyway. I always think it‘s better to talk about it then to pretend it doesn‘t happen. Books give you a good opportunity to talk about the hard things. That being said, you know your kid and what is best for him, better than anyone. 4mo
jessinikkip I was always an advanced reader and in our house, I got to choose my own books at about his age, regardless of language but my mom and grandma always had an open mind and listening ear to talk it over. I think its good to expose children to different views and even different language as long as youre there to talk it over. But ultimately you know your kids and what they can handle. 4mo
Tamra My vote is to talk about it. With my kids who are in fact are black, we are frank and open. I would be cautious though if my kids had triggers. (edited) 4mo
CouronneDhiver Talk about it ... but you know your child best, so if it‘s better that the talk wait another year or two, that‘s fine too. I wish my parents would have been as open with me, as a child, as they are now. 4mo
everlocalwest I love, loved Dear Martin and think Nic Stone writes about race in in an amazing and nuanced way (this book handles the reality of micro aggressions so well!). That being said though, I would recommend Ghost Boys over Dear Martin for a 12yo learning about about race and police violence. I think if you are worried about language there may be other themes in here he is not ready for as well. I hope this makes sense... 4mo
sammisho Depends on the kid but I would let my daughter who is 12 read it. I feel like books like this would be a great way to open up discussions and I am a strong believer is not sugar coating things. But again, it does depend on the maturity of the kid. The N word being used in this context is not just for value, but to highlight real life, important issues. 4mo
sammisho @bridge12 great point. Black family here, so we had to have those open discussions early. 4mo
ravenlee My kid is only five, but when we encounter stuff that I consider inappropriate (I‘m looking at you, Little House books), I pause and tell her that today these kinds of attitudes are not okay, but people used to think they were. I would do something similar before handing her a book to read on her own - there are words in here that people shouldn‘t use, but sometimes they do and it‘s important to understand that. Discussion to follow. 4mo
Peddler410 Use the book to have a conversation with your son. I‘ve read Dear Martin and I work in a middle school. Let him read it or read it as mother/son read along and have conversations as you go. 4mo
HippieChickHomeschool Absolutely read it and talk about it. That‘s the beauty of reading, imo. 4mo
megnews I agree with @ravenlee & others who said use it as an opportunity to discuss. My personal stance has been (similar to @bridge12 ) if kids have gone through these experiences more privileged kids will survive reading about them. You of course have to follow your conscience but I strongly feel if a child is not ready to read certain words, they shouldn‘t read the book. I would not black out the words because that feels like censorship to me. 4mo
LibrarianRyan I would have a talk about the words. Odds are he has already heard them somewhere and I think it helps to put personal meaning behind them. 4mo

I read this a little over a year ago and STILL think about it. Nic Stone brings the characters to life without the angst & whininess I find irritating in some #YA. This is a very relatable book about the consequences of current race relations, & also highlights the role media sometimes plays in perpetuating witch-hunts. It's even comical at times! I recommend the audio; Dion Graham does such a fantastic job narrating. Five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I don‘t know if I can fully process this one right now ‘cause it got me right in the gut. Such an important YA book about racial injustice and inequity. I recommend it as required reading for that alone. But I definitely recommend it for how Nic Stone illustrated that hope can come out of tragedy and how, regardless of how injustices and bigotry affect us, we get to decide for ourselves who we will be. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Justyce❤️Beautiful, poignant, and moving. Justyce writes “Dear Martin” letters to try to guide him through the injustices of racial bias. This part of one letter shot arrows through my heart: “Every time I turn on the news and see another black person gunned down, I‘m reminded that people look at me and see a threat instead of a human being.” Nic Stone‘s amazing debut.

Suet624 Angie Thomas and Jason Reynolds both recommend it. I love both of those authors. 4mo

This book was heart breaking, a reality dose that everyone should read. I think there are never enough books like this one, where the autor shows you the REAL world, a world where black people are not safe, a world with police brutality where a black kid can be shot without consecueces. Black Lives Matter and if you think otherwise, you are the problem.

If you liked The Hate U Give, you will love Dear Martin 🍃

Is it possible that this was more heartbreaking than The Hate U Give? Yes. Working with the same theme of modern racism toward African Americans one private school boy decides to pen letter to Martin Luther King Jr. While he strives toward college. I listened to this on audiobook and almost had to stop it a few times because of how heart wrenching this book is. I enjoyed it a lot and while the ending isn't happy or sad its satisfying

Being intelligent, being good—don‘t guarantee that an African American scholarship student attending a white prep school can escape assumptions based on his skin colour. Justyce McAllister writes letters to MLK as a way to figure out how to navigate everyday racism, from “jokes” made by friends, to his mother‘s disapproval of his white girlfriend, to police profiling and violence. Thought-provoking #audiobook performed by Dion Graham.

Embarked on a new knitting project: a sleeveless undershirt. I had to start over four times, but that wasn‘t because I was listening to an audiobook. (For #KnittersofLitsy: First time, needle cable was too long. Second AND third times, I twisted the garment when I joined the round.) Now that everything is going smoothly, I can l listen while I knit.

If you‘re looking for diverse books representing wide range of characters, I highly recommend both these books. The Nyxia series is one of few sci-fi series out there with a genuinely diverse cast that has real and honest rep of many races/cultures. Dear Martin presents truth and honesty about equality in America regarding race/rep. It will move you and blow your socks off. I can‘t recommend these works enough.
