Summary

A 16-year-old girl is drawn to activism after she witnesses the police shooting of her unarmed friend

Sixteen-year-old Starr lives in two worlds: the poor neighbourhood where she was born and raised and her posh high school in the suburbs.

The uneasy balance between them is shattered when Starr is the only witness to the fatal shooting of her unarmed best friend, Khalil, by a police officer.

Now what Starr says could destroy her community. It could also get her killed.

This is a powerful and gripping YA novel about one girl's struggle for justice.

NOTE : Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement. Movie rights have been sold to Fox, with Amandla Stenberg (The Hunger Games) to star.

NOTE : Contains a character who makes racist comments, swearing, reference to gang/domestic violence/drug dealing and a description of a riot/looting/burning shops.

NOTE: Waterstones Children's Book Prize Winner 2018
