“A reminder—not only of Trayvon’s life and death but of the vulnerability of black lives in a country that still needs to be reminded they matter.”—USA Today
“A brave, heart-rending narrative from the parents who lost their son far too soon.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“[A] gripping portrayal.”—Library Journal (starred review)
“Not since Emmitt Till has a parent’s love for a murdered child moved the nation to search its soul about racial injustice and inequality. Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin’s extraordinary witness, indomitable spirit and unwavering demand for change have altered the dynamics of racial justice discourse in this country. This powerful book illuminates the witness, the grief, and the commitment to reform that Trayvon Martin’s death has mobilized; it is a story fueled by a demand for justice but rooted in love.”—Bryan Stevenson, author of Just Mercy
“As the fifth anniversary of this tragic crime nears, Fulton and Martin share a remarkably candid and deeply affecting in-the-moment chronicle of the explosive aftermath of the murder. Writing in alternate chapters, they share every detail of their shock, grief, and grueling quest for justice. . . . Given the unconscionable shooting deaths of young black men, many by police, that followed Trayvon’s, this galvanizing testimony from parents who channeled their sorrow into action offers a deeply humanizing perspective on the crisis propelling a national movement.”—Booklist (starred review)

put the book down. I remember this story first touched my life as I ran in my own neighborhood. When I heard
what happened and personally listened to the 911 calls of the screams, it was like you standing right there with Trayvon
seeing his life coming to and end before his very eyes.
The killer said Trayvon told him "you're going to die tonight!", nooooo this is what I believe the killer said
to Trayvon before he pulled that trigger.
