Description

»Umwerfend und brillant, ein Klassiker!« Bestsellerautor John Green

Die 16-jährige Starr lebt in zwei Welten: in dem verarmten Viertel, in dem sie wohnt, und in der Privatschule, an der sie fast die einzige Schwarze ist. Als Starrs bester Freund Khalil vor ihren Augen von einem Polizisten erschossen wird, rückt sie ins Zentrum der öffentlichen Aufmerksamkeit. Khalil war unbewaffnet. Bald wird landesweit über seinen Tod berichtet; viele stempeln Khalil als Gangmitglied ab, andere gehen in seinem Namen auf die Straße. Die Polizei und ein Drogenboss setzen Starr und ihre Familie unter Druck. Was geschah an jenem Abend wirklich? Die Einzige, die das beantworten kann, ist Starr. Doch ihre Antwort würde ihr Leben in Gefahr bringen...

    Seriously? First of all, I couldn’t even understand what the author was trying to write, the spelling was awful! Plus, there is too much violence! Killing! What if a young child, such as a five-year-old were to get their hands on this? He/she would probably never be able to fall asleep without having two nightmares in a night. It’s just... awful. I...hate it. It’s got soooo much violence!
  • Amazing

    PLEASE stop bringing race into everything! It makes YOU (the person bringing up race all the time) sound like a racist YOURSELF!!! We can talk about police being too violent (which they are) without calling them all racists. I am mixed (half black) and i am so sick of hearing about how we always oppressed, rigged system against us, etc!!'! Of COURSE with an attitude like that you will fail. My dad (who is black) always told me "if you act like a victim that all you ever gonna be". And even MLK always said he wants everyone to be COLORBLIND, which is the opposite of bringing up race all the time!!!
