If you read and appreciated The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, pick this one up! I read this in one sitting because I simply could not put it down. A short, but powerful and important story addressing racism, police brutality, toxic masculinity, and much more. It definitely taught me a lot and made me think more about our society's issues.

This was a very well written story. I was born and raised in Atlanta, so I could relate to a lot of the characters. Each character got to the heart of the rising issue of police brutality in America. But what I enjoyed about the book was the honest viewpoint of Justyce and how his closest friend was oblivious to the struggles that African Americans face in society. It was a great read.
