The Hate U Give

I found The Hate U Give very gripping and really enjoyed it. It adresses many issues in society, including racism, injustice, gang violence, and how the media can influence people's views and opinions. The book is realistic and well written, showing how Starr, the main character, has to balance her two lives and how everything changes when she witnesses her best friend being shot by a white police officer. Throughout the book there are many interesting and inspirational quotes, and it also made me more aware of the Black Lives Matter movement and different issues in our world. I found the language difficult to understand at times and I think there was too much swearing, but overall this is a very powerful and engaging book.
