The Hate U Give - Angie Thomas

Staff Pick

The Hate U Give (Balzer + Bray, $17.99) begins when a police officer shoots a black teenager at a traffic stop one night in Garden Heights. The subsequent public outrage raises questions about police brutality and the gang presence in the neighborhood. At the center of it all is Starr, the sole witness to her friend’s murder, and the only one who can testify about what happened that night. The incident forces her to reconcile her grief with a burning resentment towards her apathetic classmates and local law enforcement. Angie Thomas’s debut novel unpacks subtle and overt forms of racism in America, and represents a new generation of young people learning to navigate conversations about race in their everyday lives. Ages 14-18.
