  • Dear Martha,
    I very much like your perspective on education and gives me a sense of remembering why education is important. Being in high school, I sometimes don’t understand the point of being at school 8 hrs a day for several months. You giving me this perspective has helped me remember the importance of education and that not everyone has…Read More

  • Dear Kheriya,
    I completely understand where you’re coming from. I believe people do drugs because they’re influenced by it and feel pressured to try it because their friends are doing it too. However, little do they know the impact that those drugs will have on their body in the future. Drugs aren’t meant to be something to play with, it’s meant…Read More

  • Dear Juan,
    I definitely agree with you about the importance of how music impacts our lives. It impacts mine too in a positive way. Anytime I feel sad or just happy, I listen to my fav music and it makes the world make sense for it split second. It make me understand what the artist is talking about through its lyrics and being able to connect…Read More

  • Dear Tatianna,
    I couldn’t agree with you more. I school starts at an early time too and it’s annoying having to get up to go to school at an earlier time. Unfortunately, i don’t have the option like you do but i do try my best to wake up on time even though am almost always running after the bus. I like that the option of your school works for…Read More

    • Amazing story!!

      • Beverly,

        I am co-signing Donta’s shout out….

        Thanks for sharing this thoughtful review and response to Nic Stone’s novel, Dear Martin. Last year, my students at U School, had the opportunity to meet Ms. Stone at a book talk at one of our local public libraries in Philadelphia. We enjoyed her talk. During her talk, she really helped enhance her characters’ background stories. Reading your review and thinking of Jus, Jim Crow Jr, and Police Brutality makes me more interested in seeing the film Queen and Slim. Have you seen this movie yet? Based on your response to Dear Martin I would love to read your review of the film Queen and Slim 🙂
