'It's hard to see how this won't be the young adult novel of the year, if not the decade. Angie Thomas, a former rapper and a debut novelist from Jackson, Mississippi, has written a startling, important book about what it is to be black in America that manages to speak to everyone. It is also a rollicking thriller and a deeply enjoyable read. No wonder it has been at the top of the New York Times's young adult bestseller list for weeks. [...] It's suitable for mature 14-year-olds and should fly on to curriculums everywhere, for Thomas has written a classic in the making that demands to be discussed.' The Times. 'Despite the darkness of its subject, this convincing, compelling and empathetic book is sometimes funny, too. Enlightening about the Black Lives Matter movement, and the need to speak out, it is also important.' The Sunday Times, Children's Book of the Week.

Winner of the Amnesty CILIP* 2018 Carnegie Honour for books on the Carnegie Medal shortlist that best illuminate and celebrate human rights. 'Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this book is a searing representation of the discrimination and violence faced by black people in America and the heart-rending courage it takes to stand up to injustice. Honour judges loved it and believe it will inspire many to stand up for human rights.' Amnesty CILIP Honour
