Miss McEwan, Lornshill Academy

The Hate U Give

"The Hate U Give" is a powerful story which explores a topic so often covered in the news today. Without spoiling the plot, Starr is a teenage character almost living two lives: one in her run down neighborhood where drugs, crime and violence are everyday occurrences, and another in her affluent school community where her friends are mostly white.

The novel provides an insight into the lives of families who suffer at the hands of police brutality and highlights the gravity of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
