The Hate U Give
'The Hate U Give' was a very moving book based on the life of black Americans and the hardship of their lives. Starr is the main character, a teenage girl who has seen both of her best friends die. In the first part of the book Kahil dies. The book is all about Starr and her friends and family. Starr stands up to the policeman who killed Kahil while her family are hiding a boy from King (the leader of a gang) who stole from him. It was very moving because of the terrible violence towards black Americans and how they struggled to cope with the unfair community. The relationship between Chris and Starr shows that despite racism and the hate between some white people and some black people there is still the possibility for a new beginning for equal rights.
