The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas is an astonishingly important realistic fiction novel. It is about a black teenage girl named Starr who witnesses her childhood best friend, Khalil, who is also black, get shot by a white policeman for no reason whatsoever. Starr is the only one who knows the truth about what happened that night. Whether she shares it to the world is up to her.
The Hate U Give gives the reader a unique view and understanding of the Black Lives Matter movement. The story is in Starr’s perspective and the reader can really feel and understand the emotional stress that Starr is under. The reader can understands and empathizes with not only Starr, but with anyone who has or is going through this situation in real life.
This story is incredibly raw. The reader really feels the emotions and struggles of Starr as well as her family and friends. As the story is so bare and natural, it is at times difficult to read because it is something that is happening in our reality. Through this story the reader can step into the shoes of someone who is going through a situation like this. This perspective is something rarely found in literature and it is a great way to present this issue to everyone from teens to young adults.
Thomas does an incredible job telling this story. Starr’s journey is so important for people to read as it is important to be exposed to these sort of things that are happening in today’s world. The Hate U Give is great book for anyone to read and gets a 5 out of 5 stars.
