The Hate U Give

THUG LIFE will truly get under your skin. The Hate U Give follows the story of Starr, a girl stuck between two worlds, her life at home in a poor neighbourhood, and her life at school in a rich part of town. After seeing her friend Khalil get shot Starr's two worlds collide and she must not only come to terms with the injustice, but also fight to find her sense of self. This is a story that embodies so many issues: money, power, love, race and politics. Thomas has written a fantastic piece of new fiction that is both political and engaging, yet is presented in a very current and easily accessible way. The Hate U Give is a modern day classic. If you have read Noughts And Crosses by Malorie Blackman you will love this book!
