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.

    I initially saw the movie on a class trip and immediately fell in love. A few days ago, however, I got a copy of the book and began reading it. The book is so much better than the movie and after reading it, I noticed that some of the changes made were to make the story in the movie seem more appealing and have a slightly more middle ground appearance. See, the movie focuses the story more on ingrained racial stereotypes, while the book shows a more opinionated (and true) storyline. I’m white and I’ve always thought that police brutality and racism led to many deaths of unarmed black teens and adults. But after reading The Hate U Give, my eyes truly opened. The story is beautifully written and immediately pulled me in. I cried during several parts of the story, which says a lot because I almost never cry over books/movies/shows. I would highly recommend this story to everybody and if you think you’ll like it even a little, then get it. I promise you that you won’t regret it if you do.
