Summary:

'Incredible and searing.' --Nic Stone, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dear Martin

The Hate U Give meets Just Mercy in this unflinching yet uplifting first novel that explores the racist injustices in the American justice system.

Every week, seventeen-year-old Tracy Beaumont writes letters to Innocence X, asking the organization to help her father, an innocent Black man on death row. After seven years, Tracy is running out of time--her dad has only 267 days left. Then the unthinkable happens. The police arrive in the night, and Tracy's older brother, Jamal, goes from being a bright, promising track star to a 'thug' on the run, accused of killing a white girl. Determined to save her brother, Tracy investigates what really happened between Jamal and Angela down at the Pike. But will Tracy and her family survive the uncovering of the skeletons of their Texas town's racist history that still haunt the present?

Fans of Nic Stone, Tiffany D. Jackson, and Jason Reynolds won't want to miss this provocative and gripping debut.

    This story gives me all the feels of "The Hate You Give", by Angie Thomas. This one, I can see them making a movie afterwards too. It highlights the injustices with the "justice" system, the KKK and it's families ties, placing innocent people in jail because of their anger and pride. Communities being silenced and not trusting the police, whom are there to protect and serve. It also highlights the innocence project, who helps gets those falsely accused acquitted.This book had me going for 2 days, happy of how it ended, but boy did it have me experiencing every emotion. Highly recommend read!!!!! #Book22of2020 #bookworm #whatsnext
