This was first published in the US in 2015, and now has been published here in the UK, but the events of the book are shockingly as pertinent (or even more so?) six years later. It follows the build up to and aftermath of a truly horrific attack on a young black teenager, Rashan, who is falsely accused of shoplifting and resisting arrest and is then beaten to a bloody pulp by a police officer and hospitalised. We see events from Rashan's point of view and his classmate Quinn who happens to be passing by and is witness to the event. It's an easily accessible read in style but that draws out the complicated relationships between characters and their motivations, and existing racial tensions in a really clever, subtle way that never feels cliched or heavy handed, and engages your sympathy for both characters. Definitely one to promote discussion or just a cracking story to get your teeth into and really think about.
