The Hate U Give
Angie Thomas’s first novel, The Hate U Give describes 16 year old Starr Carter’s difficult balance between her two different lives; her black and poor neighborhood, Garden Heights, and her high class academy, Williamson. When Starr witnesses the death and police shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil, her world comes crashing down and her neighborhood becomes a war zone of riot and protest.
I liked this book because it is realistic and gives insight towards the still unfair and difficult lives of poor African Americans. It enabled me to step into the shoes of a 16-year-old black girl and realize how privileged I am in comparison to most people.
