The Hate U Give follows 16-old Starr Carter, who’s torn between the world of her poor neighborhood, Garden Heights, and that of her suburban prep school, Williamson. Inhabiting these worlds becomes especially tricky when Starr witnesses the murder of her unarmed childhood best friend at the hands of a police officer. Angie Thomas’s debut novel offers an incisive and engrossing perspective of the life of a black teenage girl as Starr’s two worlds converge over questions of police brutality, justice, and activism.
