As a teenager growing up in a black ghetto in the US, Starr has seen her best friend Natasha shot down in a hit and run. Now she's in the car when the police shoot her unarmed friend Khalil. Starr lives between two worlds - the mainly white high school where her parents sent her to keep her safe after Natasha's death, where she has to play a part so that the other kids don't think she's an 'aggressive black girl' and the ghetto, where she's 'big Mav's daughter' and the ganglords rule. Now she has to use her voice as her weapon to stand up for Khalil, and her life is in danger as she walks a fine line between angering the police and the gangs. This book is a revelation, superbly written and essential reading for anyone - especially with the death of George Floyd and others in the news so recently.

Apart from being an excellent coming-of-age novel that kept me totally engrossed in the story, this is the right book for the current times. It provided me more insight into the social issues that are in the news today.

Thank you, greenbadger, for contributing this book to the roundabout. I will be sending if off to mcsar in the next few days.

Journal Entry 11 by wingvalpetewing at Walnut Creek, California USA on Saturday, April 03, 2021
This is the story of George Floyd, written a few years before the George Floyd incident. The author was able to give a voice to the black community in the face of these many incidences of the terrible travesty of justice. She portrayed the injustice, prejudice and racism that continues to prevail in all its ugliness. She wanted her community to not be "alone in their frustration, fear, anger and sadness."
