The Hate U Give
Book #50 Read in 2017
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
This is an excellent book which I would recommend to young adult and adults readers alike. It is a powerful read. Starr witnesses her friend Khahil being shot to death by a police officer who thought he had a gun (it was a hairbrush). Starr needs to tell what happens but that is easier said than done. This book accurately portrays the difficulty of race relations and police brutality. Well done. I borrowed this book from the public library.
