It’s Cyber Monday… Have you guys used that super swanky Amazon discount yet? You get $10 off of $25 worth of books, and who doesn’t want more books? [/says the girl who doesn’t have enough bookshelf space for the books she has now]
Here’s my book recommendation for the day:
As told by Goodreads:
Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, Angie Thomas’s searing debut about an ordinary girl in extraordinary circumstances addresses issues of racism and police violence with intelligence, heart, and unflinching honesty.
Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.
But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.
