With Black Lives Matter in the news so much, I decided to read this book. It was written in 2017 about a Black girl who witnesses the police shooting of her good friend. It delves into how the Black community, and the white community react, about the protests, the rioting, and how she feels about it all. It reads as if it were written today, after all the protests over the death of George Floyd, but it was written three years before his death. Which indicates to me that Floyd’s death is nothing new, that this has been going on a long time, that the problems of the Black community have been easy to ignore–until now.
This book gives real insight into the mind of a Black teenage girl and the world she lives in. I highly recommend this book!
