The Hate U Give, the debut novel of author Angie Thomas and released today and it's already getting rave reviews. This novel tells a story about a 16 year old girl caught between two worlds. One world is the poor and predominately black neighborhood that she stays in and the other is upper class suburban prep school which she attends. The main character, Staar, witnesses her bestfriend killed by a police officer and sent in turmoil as her neighborhood is now a national story.
