When 16 year old Starr Carters’s friend Kahlil is shot by a police officer everything changes in
her life. Starr struggles as police and other members of her town, Garden Heights, try to get her
to tell the story of what really happened that night. When half the town justifies why Kahlil got
shot and the other half is scared and Starr is under a lot of pressure. I thought this was a
wonderful book that is a must read for everyone. This book has a wonderful message for
everybody. One hundred percent recommend this book.
