The Hate U Give
The Hate U Give is an amazing book, which is extremely valid and poignant to read in the societies we live in today. It is based around a teenager called Starr and her rough neighbourhood in which she lives which is populated by gang and criminal activity, compared to the rich suburbs she goes to school in.It shows how she behaves differently in these two opposite areas. When her friend Khalid gets shot by an officer for no reason, she rises above all of that to rally for what is right, and her two worlds collide. I think it is an inspirational book to read and the story is gripping, contemporary and needed to be written.
