We will be discussing the book, ‘The Hate U Give’ by Angie Thomas.
Pick up a discounted copy of the book at the Green Toad Bookstore, and read a review on it below:
“‘They finally put a sheet over Khalil. He can’t breathe under it. I can’t breathe.’ The last words of Eric Garner, adopted and amplified by the Black Lives Matter movement, echo again in the early pages of Angie Thomas’s young-adult novel The Hate U Give. By the time she’s 16, Starr Carter, the protagonist of the book, has lost two of her childhood friends to gun violence: one by a gang drive-by, and one by a cop.”
