Dear Martin Publisher's Summary
Number one New York Times best seller.
One of Time magazine’s 100 best YA books of all time.
After a traffic stop turns violent at the hands of the police, a young Black teen grapples with racism - and what it means for his future. Critically acclaimed author Nic Stone boldly tackles America’s troubled history with race relations in her gripping debut novel.
Justyce is a good kid, an honor student, and always there to help a friend - but none of that matters to the police officer who just put him in handcuffs without cause.
When faced with injustice, Justyce looks to the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for answers. But do they hold up anymore? He starts a journal to Dr. King to find out.
Then comes the day Justyce and a friend spark the fury of an off-duty cop. Words fly, shots are fired, and the boys get caught in the crosshairs. But in the media fallout, it's Justyce who is under attack.
