Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.

Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 28, 2016 – At home in a neighborhood riven with gang strife, Starr Carter, 16, is both the grocer's daughter and an outsider, because she attends private school many miles away. But at Williamson Prep, where she's among a handful of black students, she can't be herself either: no slang, no anger, no attitude. That version of herself "Williamson Starr" "doesn't give anyone a reason to call her ghetto." She's already wrestling with what Du Bois called "double consciousness" when she accepts a ride home from Khalil, a childhood friend, who is then pulled over and shot dead by a white cop. Starr's voice commands attention from page one, a conflicted but clear-eyed lens through which debut author Thomas examines Khalil's killing, casual racism at Williamson, and Starr's strained relationship with her white boyfriend. Though Thomas's story is heartbreakingly topical, its greatest strength is in its authentic depiction of a teenage girl, her loving family, and her attempts to reconcile what she knows to be true about their lives with the way those lives are depicted and completely undervalued by society at large. Ages 14 up.

Customer Reviews

"Nope"

Excuse me, but you shouldn't write a review before you ACTUALLY read the book. I read an excerpt and it was very good.

Amazing

Great!

Simply a Masterpiece

The Hate U Give is an absolute masterpiece. This story is necessary in the times we live in now with the killings of unarmed black men and women at the hands of police brutality. However to call this novel simply a social commentary is unjust. This novel sets the standard of which all novels should meet. It captures a voice that is so often excluded or silenced. Not only African Americans but African American women. This book explores the complexity of double consciousness, relationships between family, relationships between those outside your race. The Hate U Give is unapologetically black, yet in a context that is refreshing and relatable. Everyone should read this novel. It can enlighten and educate, but also does not forget to entertain. It is heart breaking while heart warming. It will make you laugh and it will male you cry. Most of all, this novel will make you think. It reminds us that no one is perfect, but we are all human.
