THE HATE YOU GIVE BY ANGIE THOMAS
Releases on February 28th, 2017
Starr Carter is caught between two worlds. When she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend, those two worlds collide. Soon, protests erupt because her friend was unarmed. The shooting catches media attention, and they want to know what really happened as Starr was the only witness. Will she stay silent or will she gather her courage?
The Hate U Give piqued my interest because it is a book that’s inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement. And from the very first page, I was riveted. This was exactly the kind of book I needed to read right now. The writing is just superb. I loved every single bit. It was everything I knew it would be and more. I was moved to tears twice throughout the book. Honest and real, this was a page turner and I finished it in one day!
