Did you base the racism in the book on your own experiences?

Did Lena and Campbell remain friends?  Would society in that situation allow that?  Would peer pressure dictate their friendship?  And where were the adults?  They don’t come off well at all

I lived in Baltimore during the riots and I just finished reading the book while sitting in my Baltimore home in a neighborhood a lot like Grant Village. The authors captured the feelings of that night exactly, and I was caught up in so many flashbacks to that night. They did an incredible job of recreating the energy from the city.
