The Hate U Give


The Hate U Give
A high school student is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighbourhood where she lives, and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend by a white police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, she must find her voice and stand up for what’s right.
