The Hate U Give

by Angie Thomas Author

When a sixteen-year-old black girl, Starr Carter, witnesses the murder of her friend by a police officer, her surburban private school life and impoverished black home life begin to conflict in a new way. A.C. Thomas' first novel, The Hate U Give is the winner of many different awards, including Best Debut Goodreads Author and the Audie Award for Best Female Narrator. More importantly, it asks a lot of questions about point of views within different communities and provides a beautifully empathetic insight into a perspective not seen often enough in literature. A page-turning story about a teen coming into her own power.
