Realistic & Serious

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2015-03-05) Good Permalink

This book is about how a white guy shoots a 16 year old black kid and how the community has to deal with it.  It's a good book with tragedy and loss and is more of a book for people who want to be attached to the characters.  I would recommend this book to more serious readers.
