this story is so impactful and an important read for everyone. ( )

3.5/5 stars I really wanted to love this book. I liked it, I just didn't love it. The dialogue felt forced and scripted, and perhaps the author tried to do too many storylines.

Many of the storylines and her points are important for readers though. Justyce is African American and attends a predominately white private school, he is unjustly accused of a crime, deals with ignorance among classmates, and eventually the death of his best friend at the hands of an off duty white cop.

Regardless of where you are in your journey, perhaps you can learn something from a character in this novel and for that I think it's an important read because there are many situations/perspectives in this story that some people will never encounter or think about outside of the context they see on the news.

One of the most powerful reads I've read.
Maybe because it hits too close to home.
With all the injustice happening in the world, this story was a vivid reality of what life is like for African-Americans, told by an African-American. People need to hear the stories to bring about change. We all need to stop turning a blind eye to any injustices that constantly surround our lives. These horrible things don't just happen in the US. It happens here in Canada and more. You would think racial attacks were a thing of the past, but they're not.
This book may be labeled as fiction, but it couldn't have felt more real.
Read it. Let it affect you. Then change. ( )

Back in June when the Black Lives Matter protests were starting, author Nic Stone hosted multiple, daily Instagram Live videos. These videos included a range of guests (mostly other authors) and discussed racism within society and the writing/reading space. I became a fan after listening to these amazing conversations, and dived straight into her book "Dear Martin".



The follow up book, Dear Justyce will be out this September.







Review:



Short and powerful.







Not a letter was wasted in this novel. Coming in at a short 200 odd pages, Stone did not hold back on the punches with this story. Representing her sons in this story of a 17-year-old Black teenager as he comes to terms with race relations within his community and his country.



Justyce is doing well at school and has big plans for his future. He comes into a rude awakening though, when he has a run-in with the police while trying to get his drunk girlfriend home safely. Handcuffed and left bewildered, Justyce goes on to reflect on his experiences, in society and even with his friends.



Race topics are everywhere; dating, his friendships, peer's attitudes, college acceptance, and finally another altercation with police.



As a white woman from Australia, there is no way I would ever experience what it is like for a Black man to grow up in America. A long deep-rooted history of injustice, perpetuated by systemic racism, and an expectation that you need to do better but act as if you aren't at a systemic disadvantage. That no matter what good you do, at any point you could be judged and suffer consequences just for the colour of your skin.



“I thought if I made sure to be an upstanding member of society, I’d be exempt from the stuff THOSE black guys deal with, you know? Really hard to swallow that I was wrong.”Dear Martin



It is a fact that we have seen come to a head this year, and although fiction, this story really helped me see a POV I don't experience, giving me some insight and context to the aggressions Black folk experience every day.



Deeply impactful, this should be a staple in school libraries, and I hope it helps to shape the next generation. I felt it was really easy to read and perfect for all ages.



Highly recommended, I am looking forward to reading Stone's backlist as well as the upcoming sequel, 'Dear Justyce".















I hope you enjoyed my thoughts on Dear Martin. Have you read this? Tell me what you thought!

spoiler alert
Dear Martin is a book about police brutality. I think the book is interesting and is a good way to understand how people of color are treated differently by police I recommend this book to other people. The major players are Justyce, SJ, Doctor Dray, and manny. Justyce and SJ are good friends and want to get into a relationship, Doc doesn't like swear words and helps justyce out a lot. Manny is justyce best friend but got murdered by a cop. I would hang out with them in real life because they deem like nice people and cool friends. The Book is great and i would totally recommend it to anyone. I liked this book because it taught me about how people of other skin colors are treated differently today. I have finished the book and loved it. My favorite part is in the end when jared and Justyce meet at their friends grave, Manny who got shot by a cop. They both become better friends. This is weird because they both fight in the book over Jared saying racist things. SJ and Justyce start dating and have a relationship despite justyce getting arrested at the beginning of the book trying to save his ex. I was annoyed that the cop thought Justyce was doeing bad when he was trying to get his ex into the car to take her home. I am happy Jared and Justyce understood each other and became friends.
