Incredible View of Reality

This book had me at the edge of my seat. This gives a great look into racial injustice, friendship, and gripping reality. I recommend it to any teen that comes to the library looking for something contemporary and insightful.

I read the book at school I fell in love immediately. My classmates all said “this is one of the best books you can find.” It shows what’s happening in the real world. It almost made me cry at times it was so sad. Go and get this book online or at your neighborhood book store
