2023 August Featured Book: Adults and Teens

The Hate U Give  by Angie Thomas

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.

This book is cataloged as a Young Adult title at many libraries, however the message is both powerful and touching. It is a worthwhile read and fantastic audio book that lets you see inside the personal lives of two teenagers living the Black Lives Matter slogan.

You can find this book at your local library, or purchase it from our bookshop.org store.
