Staff Reviews


Did you know that T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E. stands for The Hate U Give Little Infants F-s Everyone? This book explores the hate (cometimes inadvertently) given to people of color on a daily basis through the lens of a 16 year old.

— Kerri McNair

This refreshing, poignant and very important book by Angie Thomas captures the life of Starr Carter who loses her childhood best friend to a police officer. The Hate U Give is a must-read for any young person facing the current political climate. The movie is coming in October!

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.

Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil's name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

But what Starr does--or does not--say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

And don't miss On the Come Up, Angie Thomas's powerful follow-up to The Hate U Give.
