Book: The Hate U Give


The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Book of the week is supposed to be for young adults but there’s a lot to enjoy for regular adults too (whatever the fuck those are). Exceptional voice, tone, and flow make this help the story breeze by, with lots to say about race, racism, identity, growing up, and not giving a fuck (aka:courage). This has become essential young adult reading but it works for the old dogs too. More Black stories need to be told because there are a lot of people out there who could benefit from a glimpse of their world from new perspective (and by people, i mean white people.)
