Discussion led by Susanne Sullivan (October 9, 2018)
Caught between her poor neighborhood and her fancy prep school, sixteen-year-old Starr Carter becomes the focus of intimidation and more after witnessing the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend, Khalil, by a police officer. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? But what Starr does or does not say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life. Don’t let the “young adult” label on this book throw you…there’s lots to discuss here.
