A powerful and brave YA novel about what prejudice looks like in the 21st century.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. Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this is a powerful and gripping YA novel about one girl's struggle for justice. Movie rights have been sold to Fox, with Amandla Stenberg (The Hunger Games) to star.

Anmeldelser

«“The Hate U Give says more about the contemporary black experience in America than any book I have read for years.”»

Alex Wheatle, The Guardian

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

The Observer

«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

«“Topical, painful and important.”»

The Sunday Times

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

John Green
