Edgy book has tons of strong violence and strong language, but still great!

This book I was really interested in when I got it at my bookstore, but when I read it, it was EXTREMELY edgy. Strong violence (including the protest violence, along with showing how a family killed chickens), strong language (hell, bitch, the "N" word (which is used frequently)), make this book a scary one. But the messages that it gives, the education, and the role models make this book a hit! But this book scared me a bit, so I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
