Where do I even start with this book?

Let's start here. Let's start by saying that when I read the synopsis for Johnny and Jamaal, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Yes, because this book isn't one you pick up if you're looking for a fun read, or a relaxed afternoon. This book has a message, a pretty damn important one, a pretty damn touchy one too, and it demands attention.
To put it simply, this book is about the conflicts about Blacks and Whites in America, specifically in the United States.

When I First Saw You, WIFSY for short, is an original monthly feature here on Sailing Through Books that consists of writing a made-up synopsis for a book based on its cover and title only. Essentially judging a book by its cover, yes.

Well hello there!
It's been so long since the last time we spoke! I love what you did with your hair! And is that a new shirt? Lovely!

My apologies for the lateness of this WIFSY post (again), but I'm here now so let's not waste any more time and jump right into it!
The choices this month were all really interesting and I had a hard time picking one, but I finally decided to go with Beautiful Broken Girls.
