While the book Stand Your Ground is a novel it clearly based on the horrific events that have been playing out in our communities and on our screens over the past year. It was a fast read, an emotional read and I finished it in less than a day. It was easy to relate to Janice and to every character in this book including her husband and others who were distrustful of the courts and wanted to seek their own type of justice. I probably would too, in my grief, despair and knowing that justice might not be served. Yet, Janice stood her own ground as she sought justice without violence. The tensions between Janice and Tyrone were beautifully detailed as they grieved differently and separately which is so often the case.

While this book is compulsively readable I did, at times, feel that it veered into the romance novel genre and the writing lost some of its depth. Yet, overall an eye-opening, truth-telling book about one of the most important issues of our time. ( )
