This was so much better than I anticipated. 💕

I read this for my local “Banned Book Club” and I‘m glad I did. I wasn‘t expecting to like it, but since my daughter is home from college, I invited her to read it too and come to the meeting. I thought it was really well written and not nearly as heavy-handed as I expected. Complex issues of family, race, culture, and policing are handled with nuance and insight. Plus, it was entertaining and compelling as a story. 4.5⭐️

The Hate U Give was the best book I read in January, although if I‘m being honest about my /favorite/ book this month, The Thursday Murder Club was more fun to read. Both of these books surprised me by how well-written they were.

Most looking forward to Neuromancer next month

Starr witnesses her childhood friend murdered by a policeman in a racially motivated crime,she is afraid that people in her poor neighbourhood will know she is the witness endangering her life;she is afraid that people in her mostly white school will find out and categorise her as ghetto;she feels guilty for not finding the strength or the words to speak up.While grieving she has to learn to reconcile who she is in each sphere and find herself⬇️

nanuska_153 This is heartbreaking, because although it's fiction you know it's many people's reality. Although it transpires on the dialogues that is a YA it is so well written that you really feel like you inhabited this world. It's also oddly uplifting and there's place to smile in this harsh reality. 2mo

I needed a YA book for a challenge and I hadn‘t read this one yet. How cynical is it that I felt I did read the book already, many times even. It felt so predictable and that‘s heartbreaking in itself. A pick of course, because this story should be told again and again as long as necessary.

An important book. I don‘t know how I feel about the ending, but I think the rest of it is aptly constructed and targeted to spark important conversations in today‘s youth.

This book was definitely a hard read because of the issues it dealt with, but ultimately it was incredibly informative on an issue I wasn't well acquainted with.

This book is a great book to read in these times with the social injustice occurring. It shows the story of a young man murdered by a cop from the perspective of his friend, a teenage girl named Starr. It shows that there is a way out and a way to find justice for those unjustly murdered or mistreated because of their race through not being afraid to stand up and speak out.

This Book is about a very touchy but important topic in our society today so I would say it is worth reading. I don‘t know if I would agree with everything in the book but it is still a good book and is much better then than the movie.

This book was the best way to see into a different lifestyle. It truly shows the strength of people and how if we band together we can make a change. Once again the book is better than the movie as the movie doesn‘t really follow the plot line. Don‘t want to give anything away so won‘t say more but definitely glad that I read it.

I‘m probably the last person alive to read this but if there are any of you left who haven‘t, believe the hype. Starr and her family members are all vivid characters living in a neighborhood that is dangerous but also home. Thomas manages to work the many layers of the US race and police violence issues into a story that leads to deeper understanding without ever being heavy handed or preachy. Bahni Turpin brings it home with fantastic narration.

El odio que das | Thomas, Angie

I am reading the Spanish version of The Hate U Give. The main conflicts in the story is Star's urge to hide her identity in her “two worlds“ and the police brutality faced by Khalil. Through her character arc, Star learns that hiding her identity in her school isn't necessarily, and makes friends that except her for who she is.

So important, stunning, heart wrenching. 😩
It really sucks that the people who need to read this the most won‘t. I wish people would be more compassionate.

Inspired by the BLM movement & all too familiar headlines that barely seem to make a full news cycle any more. Touches on the big & small ways society, communities & individuals are impacted by racism & police brutality.

I didn‘t realize I was off work today until about noon time yesterday so I blissfully have no plans and can just read books and hang out with cats all day. I was trying to pick a book I could read in one sitting but I want to let this one sink in more rather than race through it, so I‘ll probably split my time between this & House in the Pines since it‘s due back to the library in a few days.

ElizaMarie That‘s the best kind of surprise !!! Enjoy this the kitty :) 12mo

16-year-old Starr witnesses her friend get shot by a police officer who mistakes the hairbrush in his hand for a gun. The Hate U Give is a powerful snapshot of the aftermath of police brutality in a community. Starr confronts her white peers' performative woke-ness, as well as her own internalized biases about blackness.

“What's the point of having a voice if you're gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn't be?”
Disco stuck with me because I always feel like I am a advocate for equal rights and equity. But I feel like I could do more with my voice then I have. We were all given the freedom of speech, and we need to use that to our power.

I read this book so quickly in high school, and it always touched me deeply. I think about the book often especially during the Black Lives Matter movement, and knowing so many wrongfully, accused or injured people of color, who have been abused by the justice system. I think that this book gives lots of perspective for people who have never been through it or they don‘t know anyone who has been through it.

Main character star lives in a poor neighborhood that goes to a rich school because your parents want her to have a good education and to be safe. She feels like she‘s living a double life. She witnesses police brutality fatally kill her best friend for no reason she starts to speak up about it. Her friends at school are mad because they don‘t understand and they treat her wrong because of it and awesome book about finding her voice and justice.
