The Hate U Give

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas is an emotional read that provides insight into a difficult topic affecting America currently: police shootings. An eye-opening and honest portrayal of growing up African American and existing in two worlds, the main character Starr attends a party in her poverty stricken neighborhood for the first time only to witness the murder of her childhood friend Khalil the same night. In the aftermath of the shooting as Starr and her friends and family try to deal with the tragedy, and the media coverage of it, we learn more about coming together and speaking up for what’s right. The Hate U Give will take you on an emotional journey that you won’t soon forget. Recommended by Michele and Ty.
