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.

AMAZING ❤️✨⭐️This is one of the best books I’ve ever read. I almost cried multiple times reading this book because of how real it is. I was already big on the BLM movement before I read this, but after I read this, it really opened my eyes and shifted my perspective. Yes, this is a fictional book, but it’s message is real and police brutality and violence against black people is real, and this book preaches about that. We need more voices like Starr in this world because this is a real thing. This book is amazing and it’s more than just a story..Score: 5/5

GREATEST BOOK!This book was 300 times better than the movie. So much detail that the movie had skipped out on. When I started to read the sample of the book and it came to an end, I NEVER hesitated and instantly clicked the purchase and continue reading. Best reading decision I made! This book is amazing because with the time we’re going through now, it’s making us look and see how this could and is really happening. It opens your eyes to the reality that we are living in. This book has encouraged me to stand up for what I believe in and fight the good fight for what I believe in. MUST READ!!!! Read before the movie, you will appreciate the movie more..Score: 5/5

5 StarrsI initially saw the movie on a class trip and immediately fell in love. A few days ago, however, I got a copy of the book and began reading it. The book is so much better than the movie and after reading it, I noticed that some of the changes made were to make the story in the movie seem more appealing and have a slightly more middle ground appearance. See, the movie focuses the story more on ingrained racial stereotypes, while the book shows a more opinionated (and true) storyline. I’m white and I’ve always thought that police brutality and racism led to many deaths of unarmed black teens and adults. But after reading The Hate U Give, my eyes truly opened. The story is beautifully written and immediately pulled me in. I cried during several parts of the story, which says a lot because I almost never cry over books/movies/shows. I would highly recommend this story to everybody and if you think you’ll like it even a little, then get it. I promise you that you won’t regret it if you do..Score: 5/5

✨Amazing!✨Loved this book!!.Score: 5/5

WowThis book is really good. The subject is harsh and sad, but well written. Some notes: The language is really raw and hard to read, so I took one Starr away from it. Lol There are some really funny parts in the book. This is just a hard subject to deal with in general so... yeah. *sobs* All the gang stuff. One star taken away because I hate those sort of things. The language seems really over exaggerated. I mean, seriously, I get that they live in a bad neighborhood, but I find it hard to believe that anyone talks like that, much less African Americans. All-in-all, pretty good. Something I’ve noticed tho. A black man can say he hates whites but a white man can’t say he hates blacks. Neither are okay, but America is not equal, and we need to think about exactly who we’re elevating in our culture. Also, to the person who says that they think that whites should die, I AM WHITE. HOW YOU FEEL IF SOMEONE TOLD YOU THAT YOU SHOULD DIE BECAUSE YOUR SKIN IS A DIFFERENT COLOR, NOT GOOD HUH?.Score: 3/5

Even better than expected!I’d heard only good things about this book, so I went in with high expectations. The Hate U Give exceeded them. I was really looking for something to broaden my horizons and learn about Black culture, but I really don’t like non-fiction. This book was perfect.
