Now a major motion picture, starring Amandla Stenberg

No. 1 New York Times bestseller

Goodreads Choice Awards Best of the Best

National Book Award Longlist

Starr lives in two worlds: the poor neighborhood 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.

Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this is a powerful and gripping YA novel about one girl's struggle for justice.

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

“[…] a powerful look at racism in 21st-century America.” - The Observer

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 Pool - 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 - Nikesh Shukla
