This was a very inspiring book. I think that the message behind the book was that no matter how you are brought up, that doesn't define who you are-- you can become someone who's inspiring. Even though I was kind of reluctant to read it at first, I would rate this book 5/5 stars.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
Enter a review at least one full sentence long.
"The Hate U Give" by Angie Thomas is about a 16-year-old girl named Starr who lives in the "hood." She goes to a nice private school that she says is "full of white people and no black people." The main point of the book is surrounded by the fact that she saw her best friend shot by a police officer. As she goes through the legal and emotional process of understanding what happened, she learns more about her community and her friends.
I liked this book because it directs its focus around police brutality and the racial discrimination in our country. Angie Thomas created a great story in which she interlaced those two major topics and made the story interesting enough for younger audiences. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
