The Hate U Give

by Angie Thomas
Balzer + Bray, February 2017   ISBN: 978-006249853-3
Price: $17.99

“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.” -Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The Hate U Give is a groundbreaking, thought-provoking debut novel inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, about a teen girl who is the only witness to her friend’s fatal shooting by a police officer."--publisher description
