The Hate U Give

What can you say about a book that has won so many awards, been featured in so many blogs, has a film coming out and has had so many words written about it already?

The only thing I can add is that I love it, though it was an emotional read it was so worth it.

The Hate U Give is a book of a generation and a nation, highlighting the escalating issues of race and police brutality in the USA, which seem to be getting worse with the election of Trump.

Hard and unrelenting throughout, The Hate U Give is passionate and grabs the audience from the start all the way to the finish, pulling on punches when looking at all aspects of American culture.

If you haven’t already read this book, where have you been? Really this is a book that requires reading and talking about.
