Trayvon Martin was killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer in Sanford, Florida in 2014. The killer initially hid behind a controversial law referred to as Stand Your Ground. A young, black teenager was taken from this world, most likely because of this law, and a neighborhood watch volunteer who should never have been in possession of a gun while patrolling the neighborhood. This book is written from the viewpoint of Sybrina Fulton (Trayvon's mother) and Tracy Martin (Trayvon's father). One can only imagine the magnitude of loss these parents feel from losing their son, and the killer not only not getting arrested, but eventually being charged after a special prosecutor is assigned, and then getting acquitted.
