I would like to give infinite props to Angie Thomas for her book The Hate U Give. Starr, the main character, is a Black teenager trying to balance her two different lives while also fighting for justice for her friend, Khalil, whose murder she witnessed. Readers follow Starr’s path of figuring out her life and using her voice. Along with the amazing writing style, comedy, and character growth the author includes, there is also a very important and relevant message being shared. This book captures the often invisible yet serious reality for many minority groups in America; it is our job to change it. I recommend The Hate U Give to everybody to read at one point in their lives.
