Dear Martin author Nic Stone manages not only to maintain the characters' humanity in what could easily become a paint-by-number pulled-from-the-headlines story, but also breathes a realness into each character so they become just like people readers already know. Dear Martin is about Justyce, a 17 year old high school senior at a prep school in Atlanta who, over the duration of the story, finds himself treated unfairly in certain situations as a young Black man.
