Here is the goodreads synopsis of The Good Shepherd:
C.S. Forester's name on a novel gives promise of excellent entertainment, but always something more--the development of character, the flow of history, and the stress of events. THE GOOD SHEPHERD is in this genre.A convoy is ploughing through icy, submarine-infested North Atlantic seas during the most critical days of WW II. In charge is Commander George Krause, an untested veteran of the U.S. navy. He faces 48 hours of desperate peril.
Similar to Just Mercy and the movie Selma, The Hate U Give is now available to view for free on all digital platforms in the United States. The hope is to provide something that could help people understand the difficult situation African Americans go through under America's issues of racism.

Here is the goodreads synopsis of The Hate U Give:
Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.
Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.
But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.
Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this is a powerful and gripping YA novel about one girl's struggle for justice.
The Hate U Give won the Goodreads Choice Awards in 2017 for Best Book of 2017
