So glad that #AAM finally made me try Nic Stone. A really fast, well-written, timely, and impactful read. I loved Justyce, and his story is an excellent way to bring the racial injustice we continue to see today to a wide audience of readers.
The audiobook is especially good, read by one of my favorite narrators.
I loved this book. Glad I picked it for #AuthorAMonth What a book! Heartbreaking & heartwarming. Anger & peace. Fear & courage, violence & non-violence. Beautiful but a tearjerker. I specially loved the way it ended.4.5🌟 I am going to read the next one as well.

Wow!!!! This may only be a short book but it really packs a punch, repeatedly. Had to read it in one sitting and was totally invested in the character. At times not easy reading and you fear what is coming. Definitely stares racism in the face and totally exposes the everyday effect of racism. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
2nd book read for September.
This will be a fab #AuthorAMonth, I can already tell. I need to read everything by this author. 💙
If you loved The Hate U Give, this is along that speed. Truthful, honest, but portrays kids like actual kids. I hope this is in classrooms across the country. Starting the sequel as we speak.
This children‘s book is about the life MLK Jr. lived and his beliefs on segregation and equal rights and how he fought for what he believed was right even though it went against everyone else. This is a very good book to have in the classroom, as it would be very educational for students.
