Store pick: After Justyce, an African American teen on the path to an Ivy League education, encounters racial profiling for the first time, he starts writing letters to Martin Luther King, Jr., to help him figure out what he should do. But now that his eyes have been opened and he sees the racial injustice happening everywhere from his predominantly white private school to the local police to the media, he can't help but feel like maybe Martin doesn't have the answers, especially after tragedy hits close to home. A fast read, this book doesn't hesitate to pull punches, but you won't want to put it down until you're done, when you realize that the story isn't really over. Fans of The Hate U Give won't want to miss this one. -Melissa O., store employee
