Sixteen-year-old Starr is used to navigating two worlds: Garden Heights, the tough neighborhood where she and her family live, and Williamson Prep, a tony private school across town, where Starr is one of only a few Black students. After Starr is the only witness to the killing of her childhood friend Khalil by police, she comes forward to defend Khalil and their community, putting her school relationships--and her family's safety--on the line. A gripping narrative inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this is a contemporary tale of complicated and tender family dynamics, loyalty, race relations, and bravery in the face of fear. -Kit Ballenger (14 and Up)
