Soon to be a major motion picture

My parents didn’t raise me to fear the police, just to be smart around them. They told me it’s not smart to move whilst a cop has his back to you.

Khalil does.

Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this is a powerful, gripping and piercingly relevant YA novel about inequality, police violence, 21st century prejudice and one girl’s struggle for justice.

Sixteen-year-old Starr lives in two worlds: the poor neighbourhood where she was born and raised and her posh high school in the suburbs. The uneasy balance between them is shattered when Starr is the only witness to the fatal shooting of her unarmed best friend, Khalil, by a police officer.

Now what Starr says could destroy her community. It could also get her killed.

‘The Hate U Give is an outstanding debut novel and says more about the contemporary black experience in America than any book I have read for years, whether fiction or non-fiction.’ – The Guardian

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Angie Thomas has written a stunning, brilliant, gut-wrenching novel that will be remembered as a classic of our time.' - John Green

'It's hard to see how this won't be the young adult novel of the year, if not the decade. Angie Thomas, a former rapper and a debut novelist from Jackson, Mississippi, has written a startling, important book about what it is to be black in America that manages to speak to everyone. It is also a rollicking thriller and a deeply enjoyable read. No wonder it has been at the top of the New York Times's young adult bestseller list for weeks. [...] It's suitable for mature 14-year-olds and should fly on to curriculums everywhere, for Thomas has written a classic in the making that demands to be discussed.' - The Times

'Completely gripping, hugely affecting and beautifully written, THUG encompasses race, violence, family and growing up and will surely be remembered as a defining YA book of our time. A must-read.' - Anna James, The Pool

'The Hate U Give is going to be one of the most important books of 2017, no hyperbole, just facts.' - Nikesh Shukla, writer and editor of The Good Immigrant 

'Despite the darkness of its subject, this convincing, compelling and empathetic book is sometimes funny, too. Enlightening about the Black Lives Matter movement, and the need to speak out, it is also important.' - Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times
