With the prevalent rate of injustice, corrupt politicians, and violence, you would relate to The Hate U Give. It’s very timely and realistic, opening people’s eyes.
The story is about a sixteen-year-old Starr Carter who witnessed the fatal shooting of her best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Soon after the incident, his death has become a national headline. Some people call him a thug, drug dealer, or a gangbanger.
After witnessing Khalil’s death, Starr and his family were threatened by some cops and local drug lords. Everyone is curious to know what happened during the incident. Only Starr can answer.
Since 2017, The Hate U Give receives global recognition. Among the awards include Goodreads Choice Awards Best of the Best, Printz Honor Book, #1 New York Times Bestseller, Coretta Scott King Honor Book, and William C. Morris Award Winner.
The author Angie Thomas recently announced the next edition entitled On The Come Up. For those who can’t wait for the new book, it’s only a few months away. So don’t lose hope! For those who are looking for a relatable and remarkable book, I recommend The Hate U Give! It’s worth of $14.07 that won’t cost an arm or a leg.
