The book centers around Justyce McAllister, a high school senior, who is the top of his class and Ivy League bound.  His world is turned upside down one night when he tries helping his girlfriend who is drunk.  Justyce ends up in handcuffs and begins thinking about racism, hatred, and prejudice that he faces each day.  He writes letters to Dr. Martin Luther King to ask him what he would do in similar situations and starts an experiment to be like Martin.
