Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.

Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

    Why does this book stop me from continuing reading past page 34? It says there’s 400 pages, yet I’m only seeing 34? Anyone else having this problem? Of course apple won’t help me, so maybe one of you can.

    Definitely the best book I’ve read in a long time and it really makes you think about what the world is like for others and how some are more privileged. It gives you a chance to see the everyday live for a lot of people. I’d recommend this book to anyone and everyone

    This book is even better than the movie. You can empathize with the characters. Shades of grey are explored without over simplifying. I was inspired. If we can figure this out- how to live together- how to make sure everyone has opportunities, it will be amazing. I really feel we can get there if we keep pushing.
