The Hate U Give Book Review



Realistic Fiction – 453 pages – Published 2017

Angie Thomas hits it out of the park with The Hate U Give! This black lives matter novel is written in the first person narrative giving 16-year-old Starr Carter a voice that is not only authentic but also incredibly current and believable. Starr witnesses the deaths of her two best friends – one at the hands of a drive-by shooter, and the other at the hands of a white neighborhood cop. This multi-dimensional novel is a must read! I rated it five stars because of its relevance and authenticity. – July 3, 2018
