Staff Reviews


Jen and Riley have been best friends forever. Now in their 30s, their lives are very different. Riley is a television reporter, poised to become one of the first Black anchors in Philadelphia. Jen, who is white, married young and has a baby on the way. When her husband, a city police officer and his partner shoot an unarmed Black teenager, Riley covers the story, and the ensuing outrage tests their friendship as never before. A powerful and timely novel about race, friendship, and justice.
