The Hate U Give

The Hate U Give is an incredibly moving book shining the light on the horrible truth that is gang violence.

Starr, the main character, lives in two worlds. The strange unfamiliar bubble that is her private school and the raw uncensored violence of her neighbourhood. But when she witnesses the unarmed, fatal shooting of her best friend the invisible barrier between her two lives shatter. Starr finds herself sitting in the middle of the glass surrounded by death threats from rival gangs, stress from friends and pressure from police investigators saying they are "doing the right thing".
