    This was super brutal and super good! And so smol...it literally arrived in the mail and I nearly lost it in the packaging.

    This was short, but REALLY powerful and so important. It was refreshing to see a male PoC as the narrator in a YA book, too! And the comparison to The Hate U Give is inevitable, but I don't think it needs to be any sort of contest. Both of these books are amazing. They both focus on police brutality...
