Unlawful Justice is one of those books that sticks with you for a long time. I had to stop reading a few times because its so emotional. The racial tension, the violence, and the emotional pain is all very real. Sometimes I felt that Liv was too naive. It bordered on annoying. However, it didn’t ruin the book for me. Her and Grayson are interesting characters because they simply can’t imagine how racist these people they had known forever were. While it would be easy to say “Oh come on! You had to know” I think its really honest. Truly you have no idea how some people feel deep down. You don’t know what people are really capable of. How many times is there a major event and people go on the news and say things like “I would have never expected this from him/her”. So, while their naivety is a bit annoying at times, it is because we, as the reader, are able to see the bigger picture. So, don’t go into Unlawful Justice unless you are prepared for some heavy, real topics. Trigger Warning: A character is raped. While the rape is not described, the event is brutal and might be difficult for some to read.

From Unlawful Justice:
Pacing back and forth in the lobby, rage pumps through my veins as I try to think about who could have done this. This obviously has to do with Jamal and the shooting, but why target Liv? Why not Walt? Unless this was their way at getting back at him, by hurting her.
Either way it will be their last fucking mistake.
My stomach twists into a tight knot when I see Walter rushing through the automatic door.
“Where is she?” he shouts, his voice filled with panic as his eyes shift everywhere until he sees me. “Where’s my granddaughter?”
I blow out a heavy breath and head toward him. “Walter, listen—”
He stops cold, his chest heaving as his eyes scan my body. “What the hell is all that?” He points at my chest. “Is that…her blood?”
I look down at my white undershirt to see it stained red.
“It’s hers, isn’t it?” he asks again, looking for confirmation.
“Walter, let’s take a seat.” “I will not have a goddamn seat. I wanna see my Livy, and I want someone to tell me what the fuck happened to her, right now!” he bellows, his body quaking with anger.
Everyone swings their sympathetic eyes to us, three of the nurses crying. I stare back at him and search for the words to tell him. “Walt.” I start but trail off.
How the fuck do I tell him this?
“No,” he whispers, shaking his head in denial. “Please tell me they didn’t hurt her. Please tell me they didn’t hurt my baby, that this isn’t because of me.” His voice sounds as broken as he looks.
