Hurts like a kick in the teeth. Inspired by Black Lives Matter. Racism. Violence. Justice? A book you need to read NOW. Starr lives in two worlds: the poor area where she was raised, and her fancy high school 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 get her killed. But she can’t keep silent…
