BookPage interview by Alice Cary. We asked Coles a few questions about his personal experiences with police brutality, connecting with his teen readers, his specially curated playlist and more. Does it feel a bit unreal to have your first book published at such a young age? How did you find out about the great news, and how did you celebrate? Also, the subject matter of my manuscript felt very risky, even after The Hate U Give sold. She called me up one morning as I was getting ready to head out to teach a seventh grade English class and broke the news.
