This book is a wonderful book for young adults to connect and bring awareness to racism. It is for young adults because of the swearing and violence The main character Starr Carter tries to clear her black friend’s name after her friend was shot and killed by white police officer for no reason.  Starr fights racism from her friend and the society. While doing this she also has to keep up with her social life at school. Her best friends Hailey and Mia and even her boyfriend Chris are rich while she lives in a dangerous neighborhood with gangs. She acts different at school then she does at home so no one will judge her and she will fit in.

I started reading this book for my Book Club that I’m in with my friends. One of my friends chose the book so I was reading it. I read it for hours because it  drew me in. I wanted to know what would happen to the characters because I felt like I knew them. Then for a reading project in school I chose that book so I read the whole thing and I loved it. It is now my new favorite book.

I think it is an amazing book because of how it also brings awareness to racism. I could relate to the book on some parts, on how loss can mess you up or how some friends aren’t who you think they are. The book is a little sad but really meaningful and interesting. It portrays their feelings and reality really well by showing how these events affected her .It also portrays Starr’s feelings by the thoughts going on in her head.
