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.
Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.
But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.
And don't miss On the Come Up, Angie Thomas's powerful follow-up to The Hate U Give.

The Hate u Give
By Jamies red soda
As a teen who lives in similar conditions of seeing my very own neighbors and childhood friends die at the hands of each other or very cops. I can say this book enlightened me to understand further that I am not alone. The world now has a perception of what it’s like for kids like Starr and I, to be taught what to do if a cop came up to you. The fear that someday your best friend can die because of bias and racist cops. This book is truly down to Earth and honest with the cursing, lifestyles, gangs, and fear. This book should be read by an entire class to help the youth understand further what’s going on in the world and to ease it out with this book due to the fiction storyline. Truth behind the story. I love this book and hope to have my children in the future read it too.
it’s a really really really really really really good book 💟
Best Book Ever!
This is seriously a must read! I love how this book explores the racial injustices brought on by police brutality. It gives the word “Thug” a whole new meaning!

BEST BLACK TEEN BOOK OUT
Really interesting read and very real! Great example of what is really going on in the world today.
A relevant read for our generation!
Such a relevant and well written novel that leaves the reader rooting for Starr and her voice. Thomas speaks of the social justice issues of our times with truth and strength. Hoping it inspires our generation to continue using their voice to stand up to injustice!
