We need books that are mirrors, and we need books that are windows, and this book belongs in the hands of anyone grade 8 and up. Starr's journey as she navigates her own identity and the decisions she must make after witnessing her unarmed childhood friend killed by a police officer is timely, empathy-building, and heartbreakingly necessary. - Recommended by Laren Hammonds, 8th grade ELA teacher in the Tuscaloosa City Schools
