This was a really good book. Racial profiling is very much still relevant to this day. What I loved about this book, is that Nic Stone shows that these things don’t just happen to the lower income families, it also happens to people of higher class as well.
Justyce attends an Ivy League school and is an all around good kid. One night he is trying to prevent his girlfriend from driving after having a few drinks. Well, as you can imagine, things go wrong and he ends up arrested. Justyce spends his time after being arrested, writing letter to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. trying to figure out how he would handle the situation that he’s in.
This book does a very good job and point out the different issues in society and there is also a very diverse cast in this book. I chose to listen to the audio version of this book and the narrator did a good job as well. This was a very quick read and I’m surprised I didn’t read it sooner.
Did you read Dear Martin? What were your thoughts?
