This is Nic Stone’s debut novel and won her a spot on the William C. Morris YA Debut Award nominee list for 2018. A powerful story which tackles race relations and a young man (Justyce) who is trying to navigate life during his senior year of high school. Justyce looks to the teachings of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to help him find answers to the situations he is forced to confront. In his journal he writes a series of letters to MLK, trying to make sense of the world around him. An intense and tragic story of the harsh realities that sadly still occur. Recommended for fans of Jason Reynolds (!!), Walter Dean Myers and Angie Thomas (The Hate U Give).
