Mrs Mc, Ermysted's
The Hate U Give
An explosive start to my 2018 Carnegie shadowing. A hard-hitting book that deals with racism and the Black Lives Matter movement in America. Against this background the day to day lives and relationships of 16 year old Starr and her family are explored with humour and pace. A gripping book; the tension rose to the final incident and I felt like I was watching a news report, it was so vivid.
9 out of 10. I'm not sure if this one can be beaten but it's very early days ----.
