Joseph, The John Mason Readers

The Hate U Give

This book is about an African American girl named Starr who lives in a poor district in America. Her father owns a shop in the district, and her Mum is studying at college. But, although she leads a reasonably happy life, she has many problems, such as boyfriends, gangs and the fact her family don't have a lot of money.

Suddenly, her life is changed by her friend getting shot by a cop for no reason. Now she must make statements , but be careful, because one slip of the tongue, and her family will be in danger. This book is very funny, deep and relatable, something ( I must admit) I never thought in one book.
