Southland by Nina Revoyr

When Jackie’s grandfather dies, her aunt finds a box of cash from the sale of his old store in his closet, along with an old will leaving the money to someone they've never heard of. Jackie agrees to help find this person, only to find out was murdered along with three other boys, in her grandfather's store during the Watts riots in 1965. As she and James, a cousin of the boy, investigate the murders, Jackie learns more than she expected to about her grandfather and the difficulties associated with living at that period of time.

This book invokes feelings of questions of what I don’t know about my grandparents and what it was like before my time.
Definitely 5 STARS !!
