“Rest in Power” by Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin was released Tuesday.
The book’s narration alternates between Fulton and Martin describing their lives before Trayvon Martin was killed by George Zimmerman five years ago and the impact of his death.
Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, was acquitted of second-degree murder after fatally shooting 17-year-old Martin, who was unarmed and walking back from a convenience store.
The case sparked protests and a national debate about race relations. The Justice Department later decided not to prosecute Zimmerman on civil rights charges.
The book is being published by an imprint of Random House.
