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.

    (Spoilers) *deep inhale* * THE EXHALE INTESIFIES* I...I CANT EVEN EXPRESS HOW CONFLICTED I AM ABOUT THIS BOOOOK! It’s just...it’s just true. This is what the present day “hoods” & “bad police” looks like. As a child with a mom who is a cop, it’s offensive a bit how they treat cops, but at the same time I respec starr. The way that 1 15’s dad depicts 1 15 as the victim, it disgusts me, and the fact that 1 15’s dad straight up LIED TO THE NEWS. BLALALGDJEHDHDBDBDNJDNFJFU. EMOTION INTENSIFIES!!!! All in all, this is a great book, & the message in it is amazing.

    I’m not a big reader but I sat down and read this whole book front to back in 2 DAYS so that says a lot. This book has such a beautiful message that’s so necessary right now plus it was hella relatable to this fellow black, female, 16 year old.
