After a traffic stop turns violent at the hands of the police, a young Black teen grapples with racism—and what it means for his future. Critically acclaimed author Nic Stone boldly tackles America’s troubled history with race relations in her gripping debut novel.
"Raw and gripping." –JASON REYNOLDS, #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of Stamped: Racism, Anti-Racism, and You
Justyce is a good kid, an honor student, and always there to help a friend—but none of that matters to the police officer who just put him in handcuffs without cause.
When faced with injustice, Justyce looks to the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for answers. But do they hold up anymore? He starts a journal to Dr. King to find out.
Then comes the day Justyce and a friend spark the fury of an off-duty cop. Words fly, shots are fired, and the boys get caught in the crosshairs. But in the media fallout, it's Justyce who is under attack.
"A must-read!” –ANGIE THOMAS, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Hate U Give
"Powerful, wrenching.” –JOHN GREEN, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Turtles All the Way Down

Nic Stone - Dear Martin Book Reviews
AmazingSo much emotion packed in this small book..Score: 5/5
Stone could’ve gave a little more.I loved the overall message that was portrayed through out the storyline but, I wish stone would’ve dove deeper. We don’t know much about the Justyce so, the book started to get boring but, I finished it anyway. I’m going to read Dear Justyce to see if that better..Score: 3/5

It was okI guess my expectations were way too high but I really did not care for this book. Subject matter was great but the way it was executed was very confusing. I could not connect with the main character at all. I read this book in a matter of hours and I still cannot tell you much about him. He supposedly had a girlfriend at first but apparently they broke up and we don't see how or when. He just happened to mention it in his journal. We don't really get a solution to the problems he was having with his mother. It just seemed so rushed. Like I said, the subject matter was great, but I wish it was a little more detailed and polished..Score: 2/5
This needs to be made into a movie!Five VERY WELL DESERVED STARS! This book was phenomenal. Just phenomenal. Not only was the writing sooo good, the plot was the most original one I've read in a LONG while. The messages and gems throughout the book are some that will stay with me for a long, long time...maybe even forever. I cannot wait to read another Nic Stone book! Also, we need this book adapted into a movie ASAP!.Score: 5/5
