'A powerful, wrenching, and compulsively readable story that lays bare the history, and the present, of racism in America' John Green, bestselling author of Turtles All the Way Down
'Absolutely incredible, honest, gut-wrenching! A must-read!' Angie Thomas, bestselling author of The Hate U Give

Raw, captivating, and undeniably real, Nic Stone boldly tackles American race relations in this stunning debut.

Justyce McAllister is top of his class and set for the Ivy League - but none of that matters to the police officer who just put him in handcuffs. And despite leaving his rough neighbourhood behind, he can't escape the scorn of his former peers or the ridicule of his new classmates.

Justyce looks to the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for answers. But do they hold up anymore? He starts a journal to Dr. King to find out.

Then comes the day Justyce goes driving with his best friend, Manny, windows rolled down, music turned up - way up, sparking the fury of a white off-duty police officer beside them. Words fly. Shots are fired. Justyce and Manny are caught in the crosshairs. In the media fallout, it's Justyce who is under attack.

` Painfully timely and deeply moving, this is the novel the next generation should be reading' bestselling author Jodi Picoult
`Justyce's story is earnest, funny, achingly human, and unshakably hopeful. I am forever changed.' Becky Albertalli, author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda
'Raw and gripping' Jason Reynolds,bestselling co-author of All American Boys

“Loved this!”

I loved this book and whilst it deals with many of the same issues that The Hate You Give dealt with it has a very different voice at the heart of it. Justyce is a 17 year old boy on track to go to Yale, but after... More

“Essential.”

Just as The Hate U Give, Dear Martin depicts a sad and harsh reality that has been going on for far too long in the US. And I truly believe that both books should be read by anyone, no matter the age, the nationality... More
