Summary: Justyce McAllister is top of his class and set for the Ivy League—but none of that matters to the police officer who just put him in handcuffs. And despite leaving his rough neighborhood behind, he can't escape the scorn of his former peers or the ridicule of his new classmates.

Justyce looks to the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for answers. But do they hold up anymore? He starts a journal to Dr. King to find out.

Then comes the day Justyce goes driving with his best friend, Manny, windows rolled down, music turned up—way up, sparking the fury of a white off-duty cop beside them. Words fly. Shots are fired. Justyce and Manny are caught in the crosshairs. In the media fallout, it's Justyce who is under attack.


My review: READ THIS BOOK!!!


I really liked the writing/narration of this book. SO DAMN GOOD.


The characters were amazingly done and there was so much growth here. On a light note: Justyce and SJ are my babies.


I loved this book for the way it punched me in the gut. This was brutally honest and I'M HERE FOR IT. This book made me angry and it frustrated me (cause let's be real for a second here, the things that happened, the big one and the small ones, THEY ARE ALL REALISTIC, this isn't overdramatised, THIS IS THE REAL), it broke my heart. It was everything that I wanted it to be and more. If The Hate U Give is a book that everyone should read, put this one on the list as well!!!


I need to read everything else that Nic Stone published!!!
