Adam, St Anselm's Readers

The Hate U Give

Overall, this is an excellent book, but it is a little uneven. The street/gang scenes are excellently drawn, and the action scenes are really well written. The present tense narration and sensual imagery really makes the text come alive.However, I feel the school scenes just don't have the authenticity and are a little forced; frankly I think it would have been an even better book without that subplot. However, I do agree that it is an important book to read: what price the American Dream in 2018? 9/10
