The first book I want to recommend is The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace by Jeff Hobbs.
The second recommendation is America's Massacre: The Audacity of Despair and a Message of Hope, which is a memoir by Tewhan Butler.
Both books are very engaging, relatable and eye-opening. Personally, they both struck a chord because these young men grew up in Essex County, New Jersey, like me.
Take a gander at these books and drop me a note or two. I would love to hear what you think!
