Call Number: OverDrive eBook
Publication Date: 2017-02-28
Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.
Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.
But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

About the Program
About One Book, One PIT
Each year, PIT will share a book recommendation for the PIT community to read together. Recommendations will be reviewed by a committee including the Director of the Library. Throughout the term the book is announced, informal book discussions will be held. For the remainder of the Academic Year, the College will host events related to the topic or book chosen.
Students, faculty, staff, and all other college community members are invited to nominate books to be future One Book One PIT selections. We will endeavor to choose titles that are accessible to our entire community, in a variety of formats. We plan to choose titles that can be incorporated into curricular and extracurricular activities and represent diverse or unique perspectives.
We hope that our Community will find One Book One PIT to be a fun way to interact with each other. The goals of the program include:
- Promoting a habit of reading
- Encouraging the exploration of diverse experiences and perspectives
- Providing a common discussion point for all members of the College community
