Beschreibung von Audible

Editors Select, October 2017

Nic Stone’s debut novel grips you right from the start. Despite being at the top of his class, Justyce McAllister doesn’t feel like he fits in at his predominantly white high school. Without giving too much away, Justyce experiences run-ins with law enforcement, and taking in the injustice he sees in his life and in the news, he begins to write to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the hopes that the one-sided letters will help him both process his feelings and decide if and in what form to take action. I loved Justyce’s letters and his internal monologues - they show such vulnerability that is beautifully captured in Dion Graham’s performance. This was a fresh and eye-opening book that I’d recommend to teens and adults alike. —Katie, Audible Editor

Inhaltsangabe

"Powerful, wrenching.” (John Green, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Turtles All the Way Down)

"Raw and gripping." (Jason Reynolds, New York Times best-selling coauthor of All American Boys)

"A must-read!” (Angie Thomas, number one New York Times best-selling author of The Hate U Give)

Raw, captivating, and undeniably real, Nic Stone joins industry giants Jason Reynolds and Walter Dean Myers as she boldly tackles American race relations in this stunning number one New York Times best-selling debut, a William C. Morris Award Finalist.

Justyce McAllister is a good kid, an honor student, and always there to help a friend - but none of that matters to the police officer who just put him in handcuffs. 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.

"Vivid and powerful." (Booklist, starred review)

"A visceral portrait of a young man reckoning with the ugly, persistent violence of social injustice." (Publishers Weekly)
