WOW. This book was phenomenal. The subject matter is very tough, but the story is easy to read. It makes you think about love, violence, stereotypes, what we say to each other, and so many other emotions and ideas. Starr is amazing and so human. In a lot of ways I wish a book like this did not need to be written, however, we do need books like this and everyone needs to read them. This isn‘t just a story, it is real life.
