The Hate U Give

The Hate U Give follows a 16-year-old girl named Starr, who grew up in a poverty-stricken neighborhood and now attends a suburban prep school. After she witnesses a police officer shoot her unarmed best friend, she tries to speak her truth as her existence in two very different worlds becomes a challenge. (Ebony.com)
