Ruth behind the shooting goes so much deeper with terrible personal conseuences for them allA hard hitting YA crime thriller dealing with timely themes of youth helplessness gentrification and police brutalit Positives The first chapter did make me want to keep reading but it was a little confusing trying to understand where exactly the main character was seeing the big thing happening The inclusion of Roberts as a character was a great idea as I like the characters in the book couldn't work out whose side he was on Despite the writing the story is fast paced and it was difficult to put the book down The story had lots of twists and turns and it was nice not being able to guess what was going to happen next Negatives Couldn't remember the main characters name after the end of the first chapter despite it being mentioned so many times The book title name came up way too uickly in the story I would have liked to have waited until much later in the story to know the reason for the title This is an own voices novel in my culture and although that is so rare unfortunately I didn't feel like the characters represented me that much If I didn't recognise the characters name as Indian then it would not have been obvious that they were Indian The character descriptions throughout the book didn't make this clear either Sadly the story isn't too memorable for me and I don't think I will remember or think about it for a long time after reading this book

Run RiotBy police they find themselves hunted by the very people who should be protecting them But as they go on the run with Hari's twin sister Taran and Jamal's girlfriend Anna the four friends discover that the t A YA thriller set in one night in a tower block in a UK city as teens find themselves on the run from police after they film a horrifying episode of police brutality This is a really uniue concept for a novel It really focuses on the community created in tower blocks and on the damage of gentrification on poor ethnic communities It’s got a lot to unpack especially in the light of Grenfell I’m really excited to teach this in a few weeks and I can see the kids getting really into it although I am providing them a vocab list of British slang because I can see them getting really lostWhile I really like this book I definitely felt like it fell short of the “UK version of The Hate U Give” The Hate U Give is such an amazingly written book It helps students develop so much empathy for those different from them For a lot of my white students reading it last year helped them become open to thinking and even advocating for racial justice This book struck me at points as being kinda “Disney Channel Movie” esue The villians the police are SO bad They don’t stop at just killing an innocent boy but they beat at least half a dozen others kidnap a girl and set up someone for a crime they didn’t commit I think that for students who might come from uite conservative homes this book might not be the best place to start the conversation about BLM because it sort of seems over the top For kids who have already “bought in” for issues of racial justice I think that this book will be perfect and they will really enjoy it I enjoyed it and flew through it but just thought it lacked the finesse of a book like THUG
