Starr Carters beste vriend Khalil wordt doodgeschoten door een politieagent. Khalil had geen wapen op zak maar was 'vermoedelijk' een drugsdealer. Verslagen door emoties probeert Starr zichzelf te herpakken in een samenleving vol ongelijkheid. De armoedige buurt waarin ze woont geeft een groot contrast met de school waar ze elke dag naartoe gaat. Overleven in deze twee werelden wordt steeds lastiger en de waarheid spreken krijgt een hoge prijs.

Aangrijpend verhaal voor fans van The Hate U Give Justyce is een goede jongen. Hij haalt uitmuntende cijfers. Hij staat altijd klaar voor zijn vrienden. Waarom is hij dan degene met handboeien om? Justyce McAllister haalt hoge resultaten op school, is aanvoerder van de debatclub en hij mag volgend jaar naar Yale. Maar dat doet er allemaal niet toe als een politieagent handboeien rond zijn polsen sluit. Uiteindelijk wordt Justyce weer vrijgelaten, zonder verdere aanklachten (en ook zonder excuus), maar het incident houdt hem bezig. Nu hij verhuisd is naar een betere wijk, wordt hij nog steeds lastiggevallen door de jongens uit zijn oude buurt en hij voelt zich ook niet welkom in zijn nieuwe klas. De enige uitzondering is Sarah Jane, Justyce' knappe – en witte – debatpartner, van wie hij wenste dat hij haar niet zo leuk vond. Op een dag rijdt Justyce samen met zijn beste vriend Manny rond in de auto – raampjes open, muziek hard aan. Dat valt niet in goede aarde bij een automobilist die naast hen staat te wachten voor het stoplicht. Maar zijn twee brutale jongens die het volume net iets te hard zetten reden genoeg om een wapen te trekken? 'Een krachtig, ontwrichtend verhaal dat je niet weg kunt leggen en dat de geschiedenis en de huidige situatie van racisme in Amerika blootlegt.' John Green 'Ongelooflijk, eerlijk, hartverscheurend! Een must-read!' Angie Thomas, auteur van The Hate U Give 'Het verhaal van Justyce is serieus, grappig, pijnlijk menselijk en hoopvol. Ik ben voor altijd veranderd.' Becky Albertalli, auteur van Simon vs. de verwachtingen van de rest van de wereld 'Rauw en aangrijpend.' Jason Reynolds, auteur van 67 seconden 'Wat Justyce en Manny overkomt is nog steeds de dagelijkse realiteit voor veel te veel mensen. Ouders die hun kinderen moeten bijbrengen hoe ze zich moeten gedragen als ze met de politie in aanraking komen, omdat ze het anders misschien niet overleven. En jongeren die elke dag voor de keuze staan: blijf ik mijn best doen of haak ik af? Dit boek heeft me echt de ogen geopend. Het kan zo niet langer.'

Why did Fonzie hang around with all those high school boys? Is the overwhelming boy-meets-girl content of popular teen movies, music, books, and TV just a cover for an undercurrent of same-sex desire? From the 1950s to the present, popular culture has involved teenage boys falling for, longing over, dreaming about, singing to, and fighting over, teenage girls. But Queering Teen Culture analyzes more than 200 movies and TV shows to uncover who Frankie Avalon’s character was really in love with in those beach movies and why Leif Garrett became a teen idol in the 1970s. In Top 40 songs, teen magazines, movies, TV soap operas and sitcoms, teenagers are defined by their pubescent “discovery” of the opposite sex, universally and without exception. Queering Teen Culture looks beyond the litany to find out when adults became so insistent about teenage sexual desire—and why—and finds evidence of same-sex desire, romantic interactions, and identities that, according to the dominant ideology, do not and cannot exist. This provocative book examines the careers of male performers whose teenage roles made them famous (including Ricky Nelson, Pat Boone, Fabian, and James Darren) and discusses examples of lesbian desire (including I Love Lucy and Laverne and Shirley). Queering Teen Culture examines: Ozzie and Harriet, Father Knows Best, and Leave It to Beaver: Were Ricky, Bud, and Wally sufficiently straight? the juvenile delinquent films of the 1950s: Why weren’t the rebel-without-a-cause “bad boys” interested in girls? horror, sci-fi, and zombies from outer space: “Body of a boy! Mind of a monster! Soul of an unearthly thing!” teen idols—pretty, androgynous, and feminine: No wonder they were rumored to be “funny” beach movies: She wants to plan their wedding but he wants to surf, sky-dive and go drag racing with the guys Biker-hippies boys of the late 1960s: “I know your scene—don’t think I don’t!” the 1950s nostalgia of the 1970s: Why does Fonzie spend all his time with high school boys? teen gore: What makes the psycho-killer angry? and much more, including Gidget, the Brat Pack, buddy dramas, nerds and “operators,” Saved by the Bell, The Real World, and the incredible shrinking teenager Queering Teen Culture is an essential read for academics working in cultural and gay studies, and for anyone else with an interest in popular culture.

From his celebrated appearance, hatchet in hand, in Parson Mason Locke Weems's Life of Washington to Booth Tarkington's Penrod, the all-American boy was an iconic figure in American literature for well over a century. Sometimes he was a "good boy," whose dutiful behavior was intended as a model for real boys to emulate. Other times, he was a "bad boy," whose mischievous escapades could be excused either as youthful exuberance that foreshadowed adult industriousness or as deserved attacks on undemocratic pomp and pretension. But whether good or bad, the all-American boy was a product of the historical moment in which he made his appearance in print, and to trace his evolution over time is to take a fresh view of America's cultural history, which is precisely what Larzer Ziff accomplishes in All-American Boy. Ziff looks at eight classic examples of the all-American boy—young Washington, Rollo, Tom Bailey, Tom Sawyer, Ragged Dick, Peck's "bad boy," Little Lord Fauntleroy, and Penrod—as well as two notable antitheses—Huckleberry Finn and Holden Caulfield. Setting each boy in a rich cultural context, Ziff reveals how the all-American boy represented a response to his times, ranging from the newly independent nation's need for models of democratic citizenship, to the tales of rags-to-riches beloved during a century of accelerating economic competition, to the recognition of adolescence as a distinct phase of life, which created a stage on which the white, middle-class "solid citizen" boy and the alienated youth both played their parts.
