The Hate U Give

The Hate U Give is one of those books that address society's issues through time. However, what makes it so special is that it talks about the present. Not the past or the future, but the present. I felt like I had a strong connection to the characters, as I could truly understand the way they behave, interact and what they go through. It makes me feel glad that my generation is finally getting represented.

I feel like one of the main highlights of this book was the writing style. A very easy read; everything seemed to flow quite nicely. Personally, I think that there were a few irrelevant parts in the book that only contributed to character development and not the plot.

However, I think the best thing about The Hate U Give was the characters. It was so easy to relate to them. It's as if there wasn't much of a difference between the characters and myself. Well, I don't swear as much as they do, but that's about it.

However, what I like the most about The Hate U Give is its honest message. Society has developed a lot in terms of racial segregation, it's not as harsh as it used to be, but there still are problems that need to be fixed. The message was very clearly illustrated throughout the course of the book, which I greatly appreciate. Overall, I think that The Hate U Give deserves to be recommended to others.
