The Hate U Give
The Hate U Give is a heart-wrenching story about a black girl called Starr growing up in a poor neighbourhood, where gangs and shootings are rife.
One night, she is coming back from a party with her friend from when she was young, Khalil, when a police car pulls them over for no particular reason. Khalil isn’t ignorant or rude and shows all the necessary things like his driver licence. But when he is told not to move by the police officers, he gets out of the car to ask Starr if she okay, as at the party there was a shooting but as soon as he sets foot out of the car, the police officer shoots him 3 times. There is lots of spirited campaigning and it even goes to a high judge but ... [you'll have to read it to find out what happens]. It was a gripping story that explores the difficult life that Starr has and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested.
