This is the true story of Sasha and Richard who were on the 57 bus together one fateful day in November 2013. While the students didn't know each other, they crossed paths every day on the bus. When circumstances lead Richard to light Sasha's skirt on fire, a fire that leaves Sasha badly burned, their lives are forever changed. As much a book about an agender teen and the hate crime that was committed against them, as it is a book about the inequality of the justice system for young African American males. The topics this covers are too important to not read. Highly recommended for grades 8 and up.
