If you think you'd enjoy a YA novel that tackles racism and police brutality with endearing characters and persevering hope, this one's for you. If you've enjoyed Jason Reynolds and Angie Thomas, this one's for you. I enjoyed listening to this and its sequel! 👍 #AuthorAMonth @Soubhiville #Audiobook

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.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

Soubhiville Glad you liked it 🙂 1w

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.

Soubhiville It‘s a powerful book. 🙂 3w

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.

Soubhiville I thought this was excellent as well. Just finished Dear Justyce and it‘s just as good. 3w

#AuthorAMonth this month gave me a great excuse to start listening to this which has been on my list forever and I couldn‘t put it down. I see why it‘s become such a standard! I‘m hoping to get to the sequel this month too. @Soubhiville

Soubhiville I loved it too. Dear Justyce is also great. 3w

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.
