Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Golden deftly portrays the life-altering consequences of an unfortunate act, the threats to Blake’s family and the victim’s. But she also artfully reflects on police brutality from inside the black middle class, where neither affluence nor good intentions offer sufficient protection.” Booklist
