This was a really great read a well told story and so relevant in light of all the recent rioting in Charlottesville Though pitched at young adults it should be read also by older adults as it gives such a clear picture of what it is like to grow up in a poor ghetto neighbourhood with freuent gangland shootings and rampant drug dealing It also teaches many valuable lessons such as seeing our voices as our greatest weapons and continuing to do right even when things go wrong The story centres around Starr a sassy 16 year old black girl who lives in a poor mainly black neighbourhood but attends a posh predominantly white school in a different area She adopts two separate identities and has a different set of friends in each place The two abruptly collide when her best friend Khalil is shot by a police officer and Starr is the sole witness to this unprovoked crime What she says or does not say in light of this traumatic event will have far reaching conseuences not only for herself but for the entire communityI really enjoyed the book because it was so real the characters were flawed and human the language was collouial and spirited and the plot was compelling and fast moving all the way through Starr is a great character uick witted and feisty and her family though not perfect are steering their own lives and their children's in the right direction Her father Big Mac is an ex convict but because he has lived in the dark side he is determined than many to get his life back on track and is a very whole and well rounded character Her mother Lisa a highly capable woman full of wisdom and love doesn't take any messing from her kids or anybody but her humanity and non judgement make her a wonderful role model I took many of her life lessons and maxims as well as Starr Starr eventually comes to learn the value of using her voice to effect change and the merging of her two identities help her to become real so that as well as seeing the truth she can live the truth There was a wide range of characters perhaps a few too many for the breadth of the story but each had a role in bringing certain issues to light One such character Khalil's mother Brenda is important for her part in Khalil's involvement in crime but is not followed through which I found a little disappointingOverall though it was an excellent and memorable book with a great story told with emotion both heartbreaking and humorous
