    Hardcover Description:

    A normal day. Until two siblings are accused of crimes they didn’t commit. Come Home Safe explores the pain, the truths, and the hopes that come with growing up as a person of color in America, as well as why "the talk" and discussions about social justice are so important in the community. This engaging YA novel from ABC News legal analyst Brian Buckmire is told in a way that can help foster conversations about what it means to navigate today’s world, as well as inspire ways to work toward change.

    When Reed and Olivia left home, they never imagined they’d find themselves questioned, searched, and thrown to the ground by police looking for suspects in recent crimes. As their worst fears become reality, they must find a way to prove their innocence and make it home safe once again.

    Come Home Safe is perfect for:

    • Fans of contemporary fiction and true-to-life stories
    • People interested in social justice and societal change
    • Parents and teachers looking to start a conversation and have "the talk" with their teens
    • Anyone looking to better understand America today

    From ABC News legal analyst and legal aid advocate Brian Buckmire, this compelling story draws from real-life advice, lessons, and conversations with attorneys, law enforcement, and the wrongfully accused to help turn the whispers and family discussions about racial inequality and mistreatment into wider conversations, healing, and one day … change.
