The Hate U Give

This book was inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement in America and is the story of Starr who witnesses the shooting of her best friend by a policeman. The strength of this book is in the characters. The character of Starr is especially well drawn, I love her voice and how she finds the strength and courage to fight against injustice. Angie Thomas succeeds in creating empathy through her amazing writing and she provides a real insight into what it is like to live and grow up as a black person in America. Incredibly powerful and well written, I loved this book!
