CHARACTERS Ñ MUCID.ME ✓ Nic Stone

Raw captivating and undeniably real Nic Stone joins industry giants Jason Reynolds and Walter Dean Myers as she boldly tackles American race relations in this stunning debutJustyce McAllister is top of his class and set for the Ivy League but none of that matters to the police officer who ju. For some it sounds like the kind of dystopian world inspired by The Hunger Games A dark dystopian future where young men are gunned down for doing nothing wrong Imagine trying to live your life with the constant knowledge that you could be murdered for wearing the wrong clothes looking shady or having the wrong colour skin Imagine living this nightmare and STILL being told that it doesn t happen any That everyone is eual and actually YOU are given an advantage by affirmative action programs But this isn t a dark dystopia It s the world we live in Maybe it s not a world I am forced to deal with Or you Or you over there But it s the world many black Americans face every dayDear Martin introduces us to Justyce a strong and important voice in YA There are so few YA books with POC narrators and especially lacking are those with non white teen boys so this book is particularly needed Through third person narration alternating with Justyce s letters to Martin Luthor King Jr we get insight into some of the experiences had by black teenage boysFor those looking for books to complement The Hate U Give this is a good place to start While The Hate U Give looks at the shooting of unarmed black men and boys through the eyes of a female witness Dear Martin instead offers what it is like to be one of those racially profiled black men It is not just about shooting though This book explores smaller but deeply hurtful acts of racially charged aggression such as the anger held by white students over affirmative action programs Or the demand to stop being so sensitive in the face of race related jokes It is especially interesting when the author also considers the animosity Justyce receives from the black boys in his neighbourhood He finds himself torn between the need to be true to his roots and his desire to succeed in a world that demands he play the white man s game to get ahead All that being said it s not a perfect book While many complex issues are considered some aspects are simplistic and lacking in nuance Justyce is an unuestionably nice well mannered boy who wants to follow in the moral high ground footsteps of MLK While it is important to deconstruct the aggressive thug stereotype associated with young black men teens this mild mannered and uncomplicated are hard to believe in I was a shy bookworm and even I had bite than JustyceIn contrast all of the racism is very overt The cops all stomp around punching black guys in the face and using the n word while Justyce s white classmates are so stupidly and openly racist to the point where one of them thinks it s funny to go to a party dressed as a Ku Klux Klan member Does this level of abhorrent behaviour happen Absolutely But the real problem we face today is insidious subtle hiding behind a I just feared for my life your honour In reality it is much complex than good vs bad where the bad wears a white hood and shouts racist insults That is why young black men are so at risk and their murderers so likely to escape justice because the most dangerous racists no longer wear the t shirtI would have also liked to see of a challenge to the misogyny I wouldn t say it s glorified but it is never addressed when Manny a black boy says he dislikes black girls because he s never met any that aren t ghetto and full of attitude Seems like a strange message to send out in a book of this kindBut the good definitely outweighs the bad Problems aside this is a short uick read that packs a huge punch I feel like I ll be thinking about it for a long timeBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube

    NOTE As a white woman I am incapable of fully understanding the issues that plague black individuals today I recognize my privilege and try to learn something new every single day and I am so grateful for authors like Nic Stone who can teach me new ways of seeing society That said my opinion on this book is honestly so much less important than own voice reviewers' words If you or someone you know is an own voice reviewer of this book and

    This was super brutal and super good And so smolit literally arrived in the mail and I nearly lost it in the packaging But while I do have some uibbles about the size ultimately I think it's AMAZING that 200 pages can pack this massive punch This is the kind of #BlackLivesMatter book that's super important for everyone to read And as the author's note says it's an attempt to examine current affairs through the lens of

    Every moment of this felt like a punch to the gut There’s honestly not much else to say about this book Despite being incredibly short I think Dear Martin speaks for itself about racism and hatred and prejudice It’s hard to write a book that makes a reader feel but reading this book just made me feel like I was being punched in the gut over and over This was just so emotionally real While the characters may not get m
