The 57 Bus by Dashka Slater

This book was given to me by my bestie @mycornerforbooksand for Mother’s Day. I have wanted it for so long. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 The 57 Bus by Dashka Slater. This one is written differently. It is a true story of a true crime and how it effected more than just the two teens involved. While it has a horrid, scary story, Slater does a great job of providing facts, vocabulary words, and a way to help others navigate the complicated world we live in. Sasha, formerly Luke, was the victim of what was supposed to be a harmless prank by a high school boy, Richard. Richard and his friends get on the Bus and after laughing and cutting up decide to play a prank on the person asleep on the bus. Only it isn’t harmless and it’s wasn’t just any person. Richard finds himself alone in a complicated situation charged as an adult, while Sasha fights to exist the entire ordeal. And all of their family and friends try to understand why exactly this had to happen the way it did.
