I’ve finally read one of my most anticipated reads of this year, and all I have to say is go read it too!
Title: The Hate U Give
Author: Angie Thomas
Publisher: Walker Books
Number of Pages: 438
Sixteen-year-old Starr lives in two worlds: the poor neighbourhood where she was born and raised and her posh high school in the suburbs. The uneasy balance between them is shattered when Starr is the only witness to the fatal shooting of her unarmed best friend, Khalil, by a police officer. Now what Starr says could destroy her community. It could also get her killed.
Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this is a powerful and gripping YA novel about one girl’s struggle for justice.
