"Getting Away with Murder" by Chris Crowe (click for my response)

This book was not long, but it isn't written like a kids book. It does a good job of analysis and explaining the facts. I already knew most of the information, but if you don't it is a very powerful story! Emmett Till was only about your age and he was basically killed for acting "cool" in front of his friends. You will learn about him in 8th grade in American History, but this book goes a little deeper.
