    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || Pinterest Wow, I really wasn't a fan of this one at all and that bums me out, because I was fully expecting to love TYLER JOHNSON WAS HERE. Since my feelings about this are so complicated and the subject matter is so delicate, I'm g...

    52 Book Challenge Week 30: Tyler Johnson Was Here (ARC) I considered giving this a DNF but I'm no quitter. While I really appreciate the themes and the overarching message of this book and understand the importance of them in mainstream media, I just wish it had been written differe...

    Trigger warnings: racism, police brutality, violence, gun violence, death of a sibling, authority figures who shouldn't be in positions of authority oh my God I am so mad right now. Ow, my feelings. Okay, first of all, can we please talk about how stunning this cover is? Becaus...

    This is a difficult review to write, and I am slightly conflicted. I give Tyler Johnson Was Here four stars, because this book tells an important and sadly all too relevant story. Again and again, we hear the disturbing reports of police brutality, of people being murdered for nothing ...

    "I fucking hate white people. Man, fuck the police!" "Nigga, that's racist!" "You can't be racist if you're a minority. Prejudiced, yes, but not racist. We ain't got the power in the society to be racist." ... GO. FUCK. YOURSELF. YOU ARE RACIST. so fucking racist right...

    Grab a box of tissues and get ready for a waterfall of tears. Tyler Johnson Was Here is such an important read. I can?t stress it enough. No matter what colour your skin is, or what country you are in, I really think you should give this novel a read, it may change the way you loo...

    Jay Coles may be young, but don't you dare count that against him. Not when he's got a debut novel so stark and powerful as this one. Cut from much the same cloth as All American Boys, The Hate U Give, and Dear Martin, Tyler Johnson Was Here brings Black Lives Matter to the forefront o...

    Tyler Johnson Was Here--did not come to be politically correct, or racially ambiguous. Tyler Johnson came to tell an ugly truth, and made no qualms about sharing its blackness, in it's raw and true form. Tyler Johnson Was Here is an experience I found both realistic and painful. It ...

    This is such a heartwrenching (and important) read. And I am just a bucket of sad right now...this one hit hard. I'm really glad books like this are getting published (and #ownvoices narratives are so important) so when I say "this is depressing" I don't mean it's something that should...

    ALL THE STARS ?#partner | There are some books for which I just tell you to trust me and read.....and this is one of them. This mature YA story is raw and grief-filled and the most blatant book about police brutality and #blacklivesmatter that I have read yet. This is out on March 2...

    ??The human heart is like a sponge. There?s a way to squeeze out all the hurt you don?t want. And somewhere in that hurting heart of yours,?? she says, ??you?ll find some strength to go on.?? The Hate U Give meets Dear Martin. 3.5 stars. This is not a mystery ...

    "Hate is too ugly of a thing for some people to acknowledge, but the thing about hate is you can't throw it on someone else without getting a little bit on yourself." This was such a horrifically emotional read. I can't help but feel a bit helpless and hopeless in seeing what to do ...

    People will try to convince you that you don?t deserve to live. That you don't deserve to exist. They?ll ignore your voice. Lock you up. They?ll even kill you to take you out of this world. And through it all, you have to fight. Fight to remind yourself that you do matter. Th...

    I struggled with this rating, but honestly, a good intent doesn't mean a thing if I cannot get into your book. Coles takes on the "Black Lives Matter" movement with "Tyler Johnson Was Here." I saw some people giving lip service to this being just like "The Hate U Give." Honestly...

    This book was very inspiring, it's described as Like-The-Hate-U-Give so I knew I needed to read it and it was sooo good. The diversity in this is so well represented and the cast of characters are so soft and very enjoyable to read about. ...
