Product description

Hurts like a kick in the teeth. Inspired by Black Lives Matter. A tale of police brutality with its finger on the pulse of our times. Starr lives in two worlds: the poor area where she was raised, and her fancy high school out in the suburbs. Sometimes it’s a tough balancing act. But when a police shooting kills her best buddy, Khalil, she finds herself falling with no safety net. Where will she land? Starr was the only witness. Khalil wasn’t armed. The things people are saying about him aren’t true – that he was a pusher, a gangster, a thug. Now she’s caught between the cops, a scary drug lord, and rioting protestors. Speaking up could destroy her community and get her killed. But she can’t keep silent. What should Starr do?

  • A US National Book Award Longlist title and New York Times bestseller
  • Incredibly topical themes of racism, prejudice and police violence
  • A searing look at sticking up for the truth in a world of dangerous lies
  • Angie Thomas is a former teen rapper with a fresh, authentic voice
