Excellent for classroom book clubs. Relevant topics. Good ending.
I really enjoyed this book. I didn't know what this was about and read it for a book club, but now I want my 15 year old son who was also born in Atlanta to read this book. I enjoyed the narration as well.
Definitely a good book and the breakdown was spot on regarding black people daily struggle. Loving while black and how it is fitting in this world.
Nic Stone has gained a fan. This was a change of pace for me, as I don’t usually read YA, but I really enjoyed this book! Dear Martin explores the events that lead up to the devastating loss of Justyce’s high school best friend. Along the way, Justyce wrestles with how to deal with life's challenges the way that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would have, while also attempting to navigate his complicated love life (this subplot admittedly gave me the warm fuzzies).
I know there are still many people who don't "agree" with the content of this book and think it's based on fallacies and exaggerations. First-hand experiences told by people like me still do not help these individuals see that we're not exaggerating; racial profiling is unfortunately a real thing and it needs to be addressed.
Dion Graham did a great job narrating as usual. He really helped me get invested in the characters!
Excellent storyline! Stone really captured the struggle so many of our young black men deal with daily.
