The Hate U Give is a New York Times best-seller which has been so highly received around the world it’s now being turned into a 20th Century Fox movie, starring Amandla Stenberg (The Hunger Games), K.J. Apa (Riverdale), Regina Hall (Girls Trip), Anthony Mackie (The Avengers: Infinity War), and Sabrina Carpenter (Girl Meets World).
So what’s the story?
Well, without totally giving it away, Starr Carter is a 16-year-old girl who finds herself stuck between two vastly different worlds - her upper-class posh high school and the poverty-stricken suburb where she lives.
After a traumatizing event that turns her life upside down, she has to figure out how to navigate and survive in both worlds.
The themes in this book are deep and compelling spanning across topics of teenage identity and self-development as well as bringing to light current day social issues in 21st Century America, such as poverty, discrimination, racism and police brutality.
An absolute page-turner.
