Stayed up til 2am on Saturday night reading this incredible young adult novel by Angie Thomas (and listening to the epic storm, and calming down the dog, wild life I lead and all). It's a coming of age story that deals with big issues including racism, class injustice and police brutality, told with humour and in a very distinctive and appealing style. It also has a kick arse Harry Potter gang theory in it!! However, Tupac is referred to as "old stuff" which ummm yeah did make me feel very middle aged but even that failed to dent my enthusiasm for the novel, it's just all-round bloody brilliantly conceived and written. I don't read a lot of YA but I loved this to bits, it's really something special.
Thanks to my colleague @babblingbooks for the loan!
