Publisher's Summary

"One of the Good Ones is magic.” (Damon Young, author of What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Blacker)

A shockingly powerful exploration of the lasting impact of prejudice and the indomitable spirit of sisterhood that will have listeners questioning what it truly means to be an ally, from sister-writer duo Maika Moulite and Maritza Moulite, authors of Dear Haiti, Love Alaine.

Isn't being human enough?

When teen social activist and history buff Kezi Smith is killed under mysterious circumstances after attending a social justice rally, her devastated sister Happi and their family are left reeling in the aftermath. As Kezi becomes another immortalized victim in the fight against police brutality, Happi begins to question the idealized way her sister is remembered. Perfect. Angelic.

One of the good ones.

Even as the phrase rings wrong in her mind - why are only certain people deemed worthy to be missed? - Happi and her sister Genny embark on a journey to honor Kezi in their own way, using an heirloom copy of The Negro Motorist Green Book as their guide. But there’s a twist to Kezi’s story that no one could’ve ever expected - one that will change everything all over again.

"Astonishing!" (Laura Ruby, two-time National Book Award finalist and author of Bone Gap)

Stunning.

I cannot recommend this book, and the recording of it, enough. The historical travel through a family’s timeline and across the country was so well executed. It filled my daughter/sister/mother heart full. And, it shocked my thriller fiction fan brain. I am so proud of these amazing authors and actresses. Well done!

One of the Good Ones For Sure!

This book is definitely "one of the good ones". Outstanding narration, great characters, and a story that eventually comes together in the most surprising way.

The inner dialogue of the characters in the book comes across a little pretentious at times. These are teenagers and their word choices and frequent use of alliteration, though favorite tools of ME as a writer, don't always ring true to reality. This took me out of the story a few times and left me questioning a "simpler" way the same thought could and should have been written.

Over all, worth a read... the twist in part three... oooohhhhh weeeee!

Voice actors not a good fit

The story is good. But the person who voices Happi is terrible. She reads like this is her first time reading the book. Her voice and speech patterns take away from the story. My god it’s so annoying. It’s very distracting and I’ll fitting.
