From the TALK series, After the Fact
Discussion Leader: Kim Stanley

This young adult novel revolves around the aftermath of the murder of a young Black teenager by a police officer during a traffic stop. The story is told through the eyes of Starr, the sole witness to the murder. Prior to the shooting Starr lived in two worlds kept strictly separate—one of her majority white private school and the second of her majority Black neighborhood. The book explores how the unstable the boundary between these two worlds is. As the Los Angeles Review of Books notes, this is a "powerful novel that strikes to the heart of contemporary race relations in the United States."
