Bed-Stuy Is Burning: A Novel - Brian Platzer

A story that takes place all in one day. However, there is a lot of history about Bed-Stuy, so be prepared for that.

It's really a sad sort of story about what can happen, or maybe did, when the rich try to come into a neighborhood and take it over from the people who have been there for decades. People who may not have the ways or means to move anywhere else.

There is also a lot of discrimination going on in this book. Towards the people, the police and the neighborhood.

A story of a riot and the people who were involved whether by choice or by just being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Thanks to Atria Books and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
