The story is told in two voices. Rashad is a 16-year-old Black boy who is a member of his ROTC at school. His dad is always on his case about not looking like “one of them” but overall he’s a good kid. Quinn is a white boy who plays basketball at the same school. Although the two boys don’t know each other, they know many of the same people. Rashad’s chapters are written by Reynolds while Quinn’s chapters are written by Kiely.

On a Friday night, Rashad is accused of trying to shoplift a bag of chips. A police officer in the store drags him outside and severely beats him. Quinn witnesses the beating, but when he realizes the officer is a man who has been a stand-in dad for him, Quinn runs. As Rashad heals in the hospital, Quinn is forced to acknowledge things he has ignored in the past. Teachers at school are avoiding what happened, but the students are starting to speak up.

Although written in 2017, it reads like it could have been written today. The book has been accused of being "anti-police," but the authors say it is "anti-police brutality." The Simon Schuster website has interviews with the authors. http://simonandschusterpublishing.com/allamericanboys/ ( )

Fall School Book Club pre-read

Another pre-read this one from two viewpoints, one of a black student and a white student at the same high school dealing with the ramifications of unlawful violence visited on the first of those two and witnessed by the second. This is such an honest portrait of where the world finds itself on both sides and I love how complicated and vulnerable, honest and confused, the navigating is.

I'm really excited to see how the students take this read. ( )

Two authors tell a story of violent police brutality from two teens’ (one black, one white) perspectives. Set in present-day, the school and community wrestle with racial tension.

Written by two different authors: one black, one white. The seminal event happens at a convenience store, when a woman falls over Rashad, when he is looking for his wallet and the store manager assumes he is stealing. He is beaten severely by Paul, an overzealous white cop, and witnessed by Quinn, a white basketball teammate of Rashad. Paul is also a family friend and protector of Quinn. Similar to The Hate U Give, the book explores issues of race, bias, and friendship, and, of course, the story happens all too often. It just didn't capture my interest. This was a combination of too much teen dialogue (and texting) -- either between characters or the thoughts of Rashad and Quinn, the absence of Paul's POV, and I was disappointed because the ending was a protest as opposed to the outcome of the criminal case. All that said, the book explores the still simmering racial divide that will not go away until everyone stands up for what is right and does not leave it to be resolved by others. ( )

Your left! Your left! Your left-right-left! Your left! Your left! Your left-right-left! Yeah, yeah, yeah. I left. I left. I left-left-left that wack school and that even more wack ROTC drill team because it was Friday, which to me, and basically every other person on Earth, meant it was time to party.
