Dear Martin - Nic Stone

Staff Pick

No good deed goes unpunished; or so seventeen-year-old Justyce McAllister learns one night after a brutal run-in with the police. In an effort to cope with the violent racism he’s experienced, Justyce begins writing a series of letters to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Through these letters, Justyce processes his experiences as a young black man in a predominantly white private school, as well as his anger at a system stacked against him. Nic Stone presents readers with a timely story in her debut novel Dear Martin (Crown, $17.99), and creates the groundwork for meaningful discussion on pain and forgiveness. Ages 13-15.
