Angela , Wyedean 2018 Words of Wisdom
The Hate U Give
Similar to Saint death we are drawn into a world of gangsters and drug lords and the author very successfully conveys the mounting tension and racial unrest following the shooting, mirrored by Starr's inner turmoil and confusion as pressure is brought to bear on her to reveal what happened to Kahlil. There is always a moral dilemma between doing the right thing and keeping yourself safe and this is one of Starr's central dilemmas. There is a bit of tenderness and light relief with Starr and Chris's romance which is very welcome light relief. The book exposes important civil rights and black movement issues in a very realistic and convincing way and is therefore in my opinion very successful.
