DearMartin.JPGDear Martin (Crown Books for Young Readers, 2017) by Nic Stone is one of those oft recommended books that didn't disappoint. It's compelling, moving, sad, and hopeful.

Justyce McAllister is a senior at Braselton Prep and despite what his friend Manny thinks, he's not treated equally. He found that out the hard way when helping his former girlfriend who is too drunk to drive and he gets arrested. He's released, but the experience wakes him up to the reality of what he's been reading in the news. And that's just the beginning. Things are going to get worse. Much worse.

This book made me sad and mad on behalf of Justyce and young men like him. I wish everyone would read it.

Amazingly enough, this book is Nic Stone's debut. Her newest book is Odd One Out. Read more on her website. Follow her on Twitter here.
