I know i’m late but this is what i call something epic, truly honest, striking, inspirational & phenomenal story i’ve ever read ! but it’s also depressing that we get to see a lot of injustice going on in our society & the hate we give to each other that can’t be ignored Starr a young high school girl witnesses something which is unfair, unacceptable & mostly unforgettable. Khalil young & honest boy masked as THUG by this world as been shot to death by a police cop for no particular reason (maybe he’s black that’s what his fault is ?) ! Will starr ever have a Voice & fights for her best friend,will Khalil ever get justice ¿ It unmasks the ugly truths through which our society is driven into darkness, it speaks bout racism, injustice, drugs, thugs, violence.......... Apart from all these what i loved is that this book is a truth, a fact that need to be told ! & Angie Thomas did it she’s truly the diamond shining on every page, on every line of the book. i love the father & daughter relationship particularly it’s extra cute & lovely to read i would like to highlight few quotes from the book which i loved the most. ~Faith isn’t just believing but taking steps towards that belief. ~Brave doesn’t mean you’re not scared, it means you go on even though you’re scared. ~sometimes you can do everything right and things will still go wrong. the key is to never stop doing right. Damn this book is the powerhouse for inspiration ! Chapter 16 is my favorite....just saying in case you wanna know.
