Publisher's Summary

When 16-year-old Tariq Johnson dies from two gunshot wounds, his community is thrown into an uproar. Tariq was black. The shooter, Jack Franklin, is white.
In the aftermath of Tariq's death, everyone has something to say, but no two accounts of the events line up. Day by day, new twists further obscure the truth. Tariq's friends, family, and community struggle to make sense of the tragedy, and to cope with the hole left behind when a life is cut short. In their own words, they grapple for a way to say with certainty: This is how it went down.

gives perspective on race.

this book gives a good perspective of the bias diverse youth face on a daily basis and the injustices they endure. it also gives the reader a clear feeling of what opportunities our diverse populations do not get compared to our white populations.
