The Hate U Give

This book tells the story of a 16 year old called Starr who is the sole witness to the police shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil. What Starr can say could change her life and her community. The story is emotive, powerful and extremely thought-provoking. Racism is a strong topic in the book and allows the reader to gain a better understanding of concept of it and how it effects people.

I loved the book at it was really interesting and influential. Starr's strength is inspiring and gives people the power to speak out. Angie Thomas has done a brilliant job and you would never think that it was the first book she ever wrote! I highly recommend the book and think that it is perfect for anyone who believes in equality; it is a great read!
