Slater, D. (2017) The 57 Bus. Farrar Straus Giroux Books for Young Readers.
What started out as a teenage prank ended up being a crime with some serious consequences. The 57 Bus is a true story that took place in Oakland, California, in 2013. It won the Stonewall Book Award in 2018 for its telling of an LGBTQIA+ experience. I don't typically read non-fiction books, unless I have to for school, but this book was recommended to me by a friend. I was hooked after reading the first chapter!
