The Hate You Give, by Angie Thomas


This book was a true page turner!  There is some explicit language and it involves the shooting of an African American teenager by a white police officer.  Race is a BIG theme in this book, and the author gives a very true and accurate portrayal of what is it like to be a black girl (and family really) living between two races.  All of the characters were developed superbly, the pace of the book was quick and I found myself sticking my kindle in my purse whenever we had to drive somewhere to get as much reading time in as I could!  Starr, the main character, has real struggles, none of which I would have thought about had I not entered her world

Parents, do a quick review of this book before letting your kids read it.  Here is a link that will give your more info:

Happy Reading Everyone!  I need a new book!  Any recommendations?
