Book Review: The Hate U Give

Angie Thomas’s debut novel, The Hate U Give,  is unlike any YA book I’ve ever read. Raw and real, it dares broach potentially polemic topics such as racism and police brutality with balance and dignity. Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter tells her story of growing up black in America, inclusive of the ugly bits, the parts we wish didn’t exist. As she struggles to make sense of the murder of her childhood friend and find her place, we are faced to consider the ramifications of the hate we give and provided the hope to inspire change. The Hate U Give Book Review
