    This was super brutal and super good! And so smol...it literally arrived in the mail and I nearly lost it in the packaging. But while I do have some quibbles about the size, ultimately I think it's AMAZING that 200 pages can pack this massive punch. This is the kind of #BlackLivesMatter book that's ...

    For some, it sounds like the kind of dystopian world inspired by The Hunger Games. A dark, dystopian future where young men are gunned down for doing nothing wrong. Imagine trying to live your life with the constant knowledge that you could be murdered for… wearing the wrong clothes… looki...

    NOTE: As a white woman, I am incapable of fully understanding the issues that plague black individuals today. I recognize my privilege and try to learn something new every single day, and I am so grateful for authors like Nic Stone who can teach me new ways of seeing society. That said, my opinion o...

    This was short, but REALLY powerful and so important. It was refreshing to see a male PoC as the narrator in a YA book, too! And the comparison to The Hate U Give is inevitable, but I don't think it needs to be any sort of contest. Both of these books are amazing. They both focus on police brutality...
