A great book that touches upon, unfortunately, a still relevant topic. The book was written by two authors. And the structure of it is seamless in my opinion. I would highly recommend this book as the authors paint a very vivid and relevant picture in to the differences yet connection that people in society have. I also thought the characters were well rounded enough to understand their stances and decisions. They were very likable and very relatable at the same time. Their families characters were also solid in knowing more of what had shaped these two young men. I listened to this book as an audiobook and enjoyed that they had two actors reading the differing main characters (two main young males), and the life that they brought to the characters was something that pulled you in. They slanged the words at the right time, and made you think you were listening to the two young adult men themselves tell their stories. A relatable read would most definitely be "The Hate U Give."
