A new favorite!

This book is intense. I think it should be required reading in all high schools. Yes, I know there is a lot of swearing. But let's be honest. Kids hear it in school every single day. They hear worse. So please get past that. As a parent, I would have let my daughter read this in school. I would have encouraged it.

This is such an important story. It covers black lives matter and 2 Pac. But it's so much more. It's a story about family, community, love, poverty, gang life, friendship, and activism. It's about having a voice and making a difference.
I'm not doing this justice with my review. Just please go read this book.
