This is an amazing novel. It is written so poetically and with so much emotion, the narrator really does this story justice.

I read this book a few years ago and decided to come back to it because I liked John Green as an author. The story was less compelling and more cliché than I remembered and the narrators made me less interested in the story sadly. I didn't even finish it

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

The story was great, sometimes the narration made it seem very cliche but overall a great read. I would have preferred to read it myself but had already gotten the audio book.
