I really enjoied this book, it expresses how black people feel about sterotypes. But I think this book should be 16+ instead of 13+.

A powerful look at family, friendship and injustice. A book that will cut you deep but beg you to keep reading!

Tone:Starr was very apologetic when she didn't speak up about what happened with Khalil.

Starr witnesses her friend, Khalil, being shot by a police officer. She also struggles with identity and being two versions of Starr: one that lives in the ‘ghetto‘ and the one that goes to ‘white‘ school.

The story is narrated thorough Starr‘s view. It gives an intimate look into a black teenager‘s life coming from a rough neighbourhood, gang problems and police brutality.

Inspired by the Black Lives Movement, it‘s a powerful story.

“That's the problem. We let people say stuff, and they say it so much that it becomes okay to them and normal for us. What's the point of having a voice if you're gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn't be?”

𝘈𝘯𝘨𝘪𝘦 𝘛𝘩𝘰𝘮𝘢𝘴 - 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘏𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘜 𝘎𝘪𝘷𝘦

Thomas has a brilliant way of putting things into words. The quote above is so powerful, and it really delivers a punch when you read it.

The Hate you Give is about a girl named Starr. She is going to a all white privileged high school as a black teen. She goes to a party on the weekend and it ends up getting shot up. Thankfully there was her childhood best friend Khalil. He gets pulled over while driving and ends up getting shot by then cop and killed.
I think that it was a very good book and is a learning opportunity because of all the talk about racism that people need to learn.

MissYaremcio Thank you for the review Gianna! This is such an awesome book! I was just missing the theme and how it is developed. 4/6 4mo

If you like books about modern issues, you‘ll love The Hate U Give. In the small town of Garden Heights, located in the southern United States, young Khalil is shot and killed at a traffic stop. Starr, who was with him, has to face issues of racism and discrimination afterwards. Racism is the main theme of this book as it focuses on young African Americans and the issues they face regarding the colour of their skin. I give this book a 5/5.

MissYaremcio Thank you for the review Sam! I love this franchise! I was just missing the theme and how it is developed. 4/6 4mo

Raw, searing, and important. Great show of emotions. I picture the actress, Marsha Stephanie Blake as the mom. What can be said that hasn‘t been said before? There is no room for racism, intolerance, and injustice towards people of colour. We can do better, we must do better. #BLM

1. Honestly, I am in the middle of "The Hate You Give" and I can't get enough of it.... will likely finish it soon.... then, who knows.

2. There are so many words that are over used or used incorrectly. I'm tired of the way folks water down the words "Love" and "Friend." These have depth of meaning for me that I feel few actually convey when using.

There are books that are important because of the social and/or political message they send. There are also books that are investing, emotionally charged, and incredibly well written. But every once in a while you find a book that has both an important message AND spectacular writing.

𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘏𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘜 𝘎𝘪𝘷𝘦 is one of those books.

The title of the “The Hate U Give” reveals an allusion to the song T.H.U.G L.I.F.E by 2pac , the phase thug life means the hate you give little infants f*cks everybody and to me that means if you put out hatred and violence to our generation then all it‘s gone do is continue to be a repeated cycle.

I have nothing to add to what's already been said about this honest engaging enraging book. (Jeez, have I been putting it off for five years already?).

It's a good one, just like everybody said.

(Also, audiobook reader Bahni Turpin is pretty great.)

We‘ve had this book sitting on the bookshelves for a while & I finally picked it up. It‘s such a great story as well as heartbreaking & provocative. Starr witnessed one of her childhood friends‘ shot by a policeman after he was pulled over. The story revolves around the perceptions that our society has towards young Black men that live in the inner city. It was a highly relatable book to discuss several difficult subjects. #bookspin book

The Hate Give Is a Good read. Give means freely transfer the possession of (something) to (someone); hand over to. The denotation to give could mean to have a cute look.

TheMrsShaw I‘m not sure this is the best word you could use to illustrate the difference between denotation and connotation. 4mo

Hate- it could mean an intense hostility and aversion of fear and anger or it could mean an sense of injury. It also mean extreme dislike or disgust.

TheMrsShaw Make sure you do both connotation in addition to de notation. 4mo

1. Yes! I actually thought about doing a banned book reading challenge this year but decided to wait since I was already doing 5.
2. The Outsiders is one of my favorite banned books. I had to read it in high school back in the 90s. Then last year my daughter had to read it for her English class and she absolutely loved it too. So having that shared bond over a book makes it even more special.

I‘ve had this book on my shelf for a while. That was a mistake. I should‘ve read it as soon as I bought it. This story is one that needs to be told and should be read by everyone. It frustrated me and broke my heart, but I could not put it down. It deserves to be talked about at all times. I‘d recommend it to anyone and everyone.

I added this my TBR ages ago and I shouldn't have left it for so long.

It is the story of Star as she tries to live her life in two worlds, one the 'hood' where she lives and the other the fancy suburban school she attends. Her life is thrown off balance when she witnesses the death of Khalil at the hands of a policeman.

Descriptive and well told. I did this as an audio book and think the narrator really added to the experience.

CarolynM I totally agree about the audio. I'm so glad I did it that way. 5mo

A very relatable read for those that have been subjected to biases, racial profiling, or police misconduct. An inside look at what it's like to be judged for the way you look or opportunities you are afforded.

I found this book very eye opening. It gave great insight into the feelings of the characters and also a side of the story that most of society today doesn't see. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone around 14 years old and up. I think it's important for teenagers to be educated on the things regarding race that happen in our world today.

This book opened my eyes to how varying perspective can be. From person to person, race to race, perspective is held very differently. This book has reminded me to open my eyes trying to respect and understand others opinion. Not to assume, but learn and talk with someone before making judgments.

This book was so good and really opened my eyes to the reality that some people face and also it cemented the distrust I have for the news and outlets like it. The book really showed that just because it's on the big screen doesn't mean it is true.

While most find this book to be incredibly inspirational and motivating, I'm going to come around with what is probably a decidedly unpopular opinion.
There are so many factors that are glossed over in both the book and the movie that for me it leaves the message that is trying to be told rather shallow and self centered.
