    One thought on “The Hate U Give”

    1. The truth casts a shadow over the kitchen—people like us in situations like this become hashtags, but they rarely get justice. I think we all wait for that one time though, that one time when it ends right.Maybe this can be it.There are those books that are important and timely, worthy of reading because of the social and/or political message that they send. They fill a gap in the market; they make waves. They need to exist. And there are other books that are well-written, emotionally-charged [...]

    2. This is aMUST READfor 2017 releases.I absolutely adored this book. I truly don't feel like it has a single flaw. Every topic addressed was approach so wonderfully and did not hold back. If you're looking for a diverse read that stands out amongst most YA,The Hate U Giveis the book for you.I love Starr Carter so much. She's honestly such an inspiration to girls looking to find their voice. She is resilient, authentic, and everything we need in adolescents today. Although she is not completely fea [...]

    3. “What's the point of having a voice if you're gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn't be?”Every white person on this planet needs to read this book."Lack of opportunities. Corporate America don't bring jobs to our communities, and they damn sure ain't quick to hire us. Then, even if you do have a high school diploma, so many schools in our neighbourhoods don't prepare us well enough. Our schools don't get the resources to equip you. It's easier to find some crack than it is to find a [...]

    4. ‘‘A hairbrush is not a gun.’’This doesn’t make any sense. And I hope that to you, too, it will not make any sense.Starr may only be sixteen, but she has already witnessed two murders in her life: the first of a young black girl in a drive by and the second of a young black boy shot multiple times by a cop.While she was in the car. Even though they didn’t do anything wrong. Even though he was unarmed. ‘‘A hairbrush is not a gun.’’Does that make any sense to you? You can’t ju [...]

    5. This was such a heartbreakingly honest account of what is happening in America right now. As a white reader, the experience this story affords its readers cannot be taken for granted. Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this book takes you into the heart of Garden Heights after the main character has witnessed the wrongful murder of her best friend Khalil by a police officers. Being Canadian, as well as being white, I have the privilege of not having to deal with any of the things Starr [...]

    6. Update 11/1/2017I wanted to just clarify a few things from my original review bc I feel like some things were lost in translation hai'm not going to be like deleting mass amounts of the review, just adding like little captions for further explanation. All the opinions are my own based off my life experience and knowledge as a Canadian PoC. I cannot talk on behalf of anyone else.Anyways, just ignore me.Update: you don't understand how fricken sorry I am for having this fricken review reappear on [...]

    7. When you're reading books like The Hate U Give, you're truly reading someone's brave decision against silence. This book has made me feel every single possible emotion at the same time. It was truly incredible and I have SO MUCH to say about it I wish I could actually just send everyone a howler containing the entire script of this book instead.“What's the point of having a voice if you're gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn't be?”In all honesty, The Hate U Give has made me realize [...]

    8. This is a book I've been avoiding reviewing.I finished The Hate U Give a while back, rated it two stars, but never dared write any of my thoughts about it - why? Because every single review I've seen of this book is 4 stars or above and showers it in seemingly endless praise. When it seems like you're the only person in the world who didn't like a book, reviewing it can be a little intimidating.Also, this book focused on an incredibly sensitive topic nowadays - racism. Now, before I start making [...]

    9. This has got to be one of the most hyped books in the existence of YA evers. And you know what? It is 5000% WORTHY of that hype and more and basically get thee to this book and read it as soon as possible. It perfectly combines a really important story about #BlackLivesMatter and speaking up for it with absolutely excellent writing and storytelling. Like, dude, this book is important and one of the best contemporaries.So I have to admit: the character are what makes it that just something incred [...]

    10. This is one of the best audiobooks I've listened to all year. If you are considering reading this one, listen to it. You wont regret it.

    11. Wow. Just wow.In my life so far, I've had the opportunity to experience many different things, but there are certain things I'll never get/have to experience. For example, I'll never experience childbirth, not that I'm complaining, although I once had a cortisone shot in my hip flexor, and my orthopedist said she thought those hurt just as badly. (You can debate on that.)I'm also fortunate enough that I'll never have to worry about the police viewing me as a threat as soon as they see me, just b [...]

    12. It has taken me a long while to compose this review, because this book is the most powerful book I've ever read. It is important, educational, and happening in our world right now as you're reading this review. If you can only read one book in 2017, please pick this one. This book is inspired by the #BlackLivesMatter movement, where sixteen-year-old Starr witnesses her best friend, who is an unarmed black boy, be killed by a police officer. Starr is scared to speak up, constantly battling what t [...]

    13. congratulations, 2017 choice winner in both best YA fiction AND best debut author!!i rarely read realistic YA - if i’m going to read YA, i prefer fantasy or survival stuff where teens are in peril. but this was recommended to me by too many people to put aside "for later,” and while there are plenty of teens in peril, this sure ain’t fantasy. it earns every one of its rave reviews; it’s an important, timely book that doesn’t feel as though it was thrown together in order to cash in o [...]

    14. When you read a 444 page book in one day bc you can’t put it down. Powerful. Yeah, I don’t think I can write a review for this one other than to say everyone (of a certain age/maturity) should read this. Poignant, important and timely.

    15. Audiobook: A VERY NON-TRADITIONAL REVIEW: - just sharingt really a review My typical days are like boot camp lately -walking between 7-10 miles a day -PLUS an hour circuit weight resistance class ( 4 mile walk to class from my house) -- then I often walk to a cafe - eat & drink something - check-in with -- try to touch base with this community- a few 'one-on- one' chatting exchanges--during my sitting break.Sometimes I try to talk into the phone while I walk. Typos exposed! Before walking t [...]

    16. After reading this book, I can certainly see what all the uproar is about. 'The Hate U Give' addresses the very sensitive issues of race relations and police brutality in a time when the nation is torn over these issues. Most of my friends are at one extreme or the other when it comes to the #Blacklivesmatter movement. Since I don't want to incite an online mobbing, I'm going to do my best to avoid that movement specifically, while sharing my thoughts and opinions on this wonderful book.First of [...]

    17. I have a lot to say about this one (longer review to come). 1. NO IT WAS NOT “a very important book”; it took an important issue and made it relatively black and white. Issues with cops will never be solved when presented in this 1-dimensional, one-sided, liberal-view point that relies ON FEELINGS AND IGNORES FACTS. For a REAL depiction of both sides that attempts to be fair and shows the REAL problem (that both sides just make generalizations and judge one another), SEE THIS MASTERPIECE: yo [...]

    18. Click here to watch a video review of this book on my channel, From Beginning to Bookend. Authentic, funny, and occasionally overlong. The Hate U Give is saturated with poignant messages about community, bravery, and the power of one voice.

    19. Video review (6 Reasons To Read It)- youtu/XM_c3_KTEX4YES.Read this.Not only is this a timely and powerful story, but Angie Thomas has the writing range of a seasoned pro. Starr's voice is refreshing, real, and relatable. This book had some of the most well developed characters that I've ever read. Thomas switches gears from writing a basketball game, to a day working retail, to a family dinner, to a prom scene, to a murder, to rioting in the streets without ever missing a beat. It has such a st [...]

    20. More like a 4.5 :).I loved this book so much. It made me see things from a different perspective. It educated me.

    21. For all the white people who said this book was racist, let me tell you one thing : racism was invented by white people. You can feel prejudiced or discriminated against, but don’t call it racism.I’m a biracial person - hi my dad’s family’s from Vietnam. And as a biracial person I found this book quite hard to read sometimes mostly because of all the comments on interracial relationships. But now again, the way I have to deal with racism isn’t the same way Black people have to deal wit [...]

    22. ***Special congrats to Angie Thomas for wiping the floor with her competition in the GR Choice Awards 2017!***16-year-old Starr Carter's life unravels when she becomes sole witness to the brutal murder of her childhood friend, Khalil Harris. Khalil was an unarmed black boy gunned down by a white police officer. At its core this is a story we've all heard before. It's a story we're seeing an alarming amount of the time on the news these days. It's a story that is powerful & tragic & relev [...]

    23. I want to put this book in everybody's hands. It is so important and SO good. I cannot stress this enough. Anything I say won't even do the book justice. Just know this is a standout novel that will take the world by storm. It is the best book I have read in years by far. I cannot recommend it enough.Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, it confronts issues of race and class sending an incredibly powerful message to readers. I cannot help but feel thankful that there is finally a novel th [...]

    24. This was an amazing book and completely understand why everyone has been raving about it!It will make you laugh with all the Harry Potter references, cry with all the horrible things that happen and will bring us all closer in our hate for Hailey (kidding kinda :P)4.5?

    25. UPDATE DEC 4/5, 2017Yesterday I found out that this book has been banned in a Texas school district (Katy ISD). And honestly??? I’m so angry right now. Y’all probably don’t know this, but I was born and currently live in Texas (hence my use of the word “y’all”), so I’m just extremely!! frustrated!! with the state I call “home”!!!!The hypothetical reasons for this ban are really, truly, insanely stupid. They say that it might be because of sexual content―sex was literally ment [...]

    26. I love this book! You will, too!Plenty of others have done a great job summarizing the story, so I won't waste your time with a synopsis. But you should know that this book transported me - I cared so deeply about the characters that it was disorienting when I lifted my eyes from the page. This is an OUTSTANDING novel. I predict it will go down as one of the top titles of 2017. I bow deeply with all respect to Angie Thomas - the craft and imagination and heart she wove into this masterpiece is b [...]

    27. I'm feeling so many things at once that I can't quite put it into words, but I can say that I absolutely loved this book!

    28. It seem unnecessary for me to try to explain why this was the best book I read this month, but I’ll try. This was a thought-provoking, wrenching, and immersive read. The characters were well-rounded, and there were so many complex dynamics at play between them. I was sick to my stomach while reading the beginning, then enraged, and cried multiple times. If you’ve been at all on the fence about this, definitely pick up The Hate U Give. It more than lives up to the hype.— Danika Ellisfrom Th [...]
