The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Young adult 5+/5

When Starr witnesses the shooting of her unarmed friend by a white police officer, leading to national headlines and growing protests, she can no longer keep separate the poor neighborhood where she lives and her fancy prep school. This book was riveting from cover to cover. Starr was a believable teen caught in impossible situations, within a complex family dynamic and equally complex friendship culture—and the events that avalanched down on her made this novel a huge page-turner.
