    All American Boys review ñ 3 All American BoysThis was so so powerful and basically amazing I know it's a slightly older book 2015 but it's like on par with The Hate U Give which has a ton of well earned fame This one about #blackLivesMatter is like just as powerful and super heartbreaki

    All American Boys review ñ 3 All American BoysFind all of my reviews at #RashadIsAbsentAgainToday I’m going to be perfectly honest here and say All American Boys is not the most well written book you’ll ever find However it might be one of the most important and I encourage any parent of a middle grader to force them to encourage them to read it I generally try to keep my non book opinions off of Goodreads but I’m telling you right now if you are a Trump supporter person who already k

    All American Boys review ñ 3 All American BoysI feel bad that I had to kinda rush through this it was overdue at the library––but I can tell you this is a great and important book that deserves attention All American Boys is the story of Rashad a black teen who is assaulted by a white cop and uinn a white classmate of his who witnesses the crime and who also happens to be friends with the cop It's uite a painful story to read because it's all too familiar It's impossible to even count the number of true stories about people of color who have been beaten and killed by white police officers A collaboration between authors Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely this book gives the reader an eye opening perspective about police brutality and racial injustice It's interesting to see the incident portrayed through the point of view of both a victim and a bystander and it brings up many significant uestions How do you choose sides––especially when someone you once respected is in the wrong If we want the violence to stop how do we en
