The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas tells the story that hits really close to home to many in this political climate, and takes the reader in a roller coaster of emotion.

 

    The story is told from the relatable and funny Starr Carter, a 16 year old teenager. Starr moves between two drastically different worlds: the poor neighborhood of Garden Heights, and her almost all white prep school she attends. Throughout the novel, the author does a great job of using Starr to take the serious topic of the Black Lives Matter Movement, and make it much more comprehensible for the average reader. The book also does a great job of putting the reader in the shoes of this girl, who faces racism almost everywhere she goes. Never has a book tackled such serious topics while keeping it light hearted through witty sarcasm and teenage humor.

 

    The book was received well, and is a great recommendation for teens and young adults, but can reach a wide variety of audiences. The book takes the reader on a rollercoaster of emotions, some of which can be relatable to students of OA. At times you feel horrible for Starr, troubled with seeing the loss of a friend firsthand, or facing the the cop who killed her. At times though, you feel like Starr is unstoppable, facing her fears, and giving her dead friend Khalil the justice he deserves.

 

The book now turned film will be debuting on October 18th, which can appeal to many people who enjoy film adaptations of books.

 

Overall, this book is a great way for teens to read a book featuring an unusual but interesting perspective of this young black teen growing up with her daily struggles, and facing her fears. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas is a great book that everyone should read just to experience life in the shoes of someone many people could never understand without a firsthand perspective like this.

    This article summarized and teased just as much as I needed to know about the book before I could watch the movie! I’m so ready for the movie to come out…
