REVIEW: DEAR MARTIN by NIC STONE

If you want to read the synopsis of the book on The StoryGraph or Goodreads, please click the links!

I picked up this book on a whim in the clearance section of Half Price Books nearly 6 months ago, and now that I’ve read it, I want to sing its praises from the rooftops. I want to shove a copy of it into the hands of everyone I know and say YOU NEED TO READ THIS.

Continuing with my desire to keep my book reviews brief and to the point, here are some adjectives I would use to describe this story (in alphabetical order):
Emotional
Engaging
Gripping
Heart wrenching
Poignant
Powerful
Riveting

This story is one that will stick with me forever. The truths in it are conveyed in a way that resonated with me so uniquely, so intensely, and opened my eyes to my world of privilege. Thank you, Nic Stone, for this masterpiece.
