How It Went Down
Kekla Magoon
In Magoon’s (37 Things I Love, 2012) provocative novel, 16-year-old Tariq Johnson, an African-American, is shot on the street by Jack Franklin, a white man. Jack claims he acted in self-defense, despite the fact that the police could not find a weapon on Tariq. The motives of both killer and victim remain fuzzy, as do the circumstances surrounding the shooting. Family, friends, gang members, neighbors, and a nationally renowned minster make up the broad cast of characters. Everyone has something to say, but no two accounts of the shooting are the same and day after day, new twists further obscure the truth.
