The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas


Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.

Angie Thomas’ debut novel, The Hate U Give (Balzer + Bray, 2017) is a young adult novel that we think adults should read too. Thomas’ language is trendy enough to capture the attention of high school students but her content is current enough to offer a new perspective for any reader.
