2018 Reading Challenge

The Hate U Give

“That’s why people are speaking out, huh? Because it won’t change if we don’t say something” (171).



About the book:

There are so many hard hitting quotes in this book that it was difficult to narrow it down to only one.  I chose to read Angie Thomas’ The Hate U Give to start off the challenge because I wanted to read something that contained a different perspective than that I am used to.  This book centers around a young woman named Starr who is witness to the police shooting death of her unarmed friend.  She struggles to find her voice to speak out against the brutality that took the life of her friend and become an activist for those who can no longer speak.


Any book from the 2017 Goodreads choice awards.  It won in the category of Best Young Adult Fiction with a total of 59, 571 votes.

Happy reading,



Thomas, Angie. The Hate u Give. Balzer Bray, 2017.
