The Hate U Give

CRITICS HAVE SAID

  • “As we continue to fight the battle against police brutality and systemic racism in America, THE HATE U GIVE serves as a much needed literary ramrod. Absolutely riveting!”
    –Jason Reynolds, bestselling coauthor of ALL AMERICAN BOYS
  • “Angie Thomas has written a stunning, brilliant, gut-wrenching novel that will be remembered as a classic of our time.”
    –John Green, bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars
  • “Fearlessly honest and heartbreakingly human. Everyone should read this book.”
    –Becky Albertalli, William C. Morris Award-winning author of SIMON VS. THE HOMO SAPIENS AGENDA
  • “This is tragically timely, hard-hitting, and an ultimate prayer for change. Don’t look away from this searing battle for justice. Rally with Starr.”
    –Adam Silvera, New York Times bestselling author of MORE HAPPY THAN NOT
  • “With smooth but powerful prose delivered in Starr’s natural, emphatic voice, finely nuanced characters, and intricate and realistic relationship dynamics, this novel will have readers rooting for Starr and opening their hearts to her friends and family. This story is necessary. This story is important.”
    –Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
  • “Though Thomas’s story is heartbreakingly topical, its greatest strength is in its authentic depiction of a teenage girl, her loving family, and her attempts to reconcile what she knows to be true about their lives with the way those lives are depicted—and completely undervalued—by society at large.”
    –Publishers Weekly (starred review)
