This was an amazing book, it was really powerful, and it felt like you were inside the mind of Starr. Totally recommend!
This book was amazing! Couldn’t stop reading once I started!
Loved this book. Important read.
I specifically think this would really benefit for white people! As a white person myself it really helped me have a look what it’s like for black people. I am now strongly interested in this subject and use my privilege to stick up for POC.
Great book! The author knew how to deliver a message in times when we needed a story like this!
I read it during the summer and I absolutely loved it. I couldn’t put it down. Can’t wait to see if the movie is as good as the book.
(Spoilers) *deep inhale* * THE EXHALE INTESIFIES* I...I CANT EVEN EXPRESS HOW CONFLICTED I AM ABOUT THIS BOOOOK! It’s just...it’s just true. This is what the present day “hoods” & “bad police” looks like. As a child with a mom who is a cop, it’s offensive a bit how they treat cops, but at the same time I respec starr. The way that 1 15’s dad depicts 1 15 as the victim, it disgusts me, and the fact that 1 15’s dad straight up LIED TO THE NEWS. BLALALGDJEHDHDBDBDNJDNFJFU. EMOTION INTENSIFIES!!!! All in all, this is a great book, & the message in it is amazing.
