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 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
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. - Children's Book of the Week -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times *
