The Hate U Give

I honestly cannot write this review without spoilers. This book catches your attention in the first chapter and it continues from there.

The ending is what really struck me because it says:

“It’s about way more than that though. It’s about Seven. Sekani. Kenya. DeVante.

It’s also about Oscar.

Aiyana.

Trayvon.

Rekia.

Micheal.

Eric.

Tamir.

John.

Ezell.

Sandra.

Freddie.

Alton.

Philando.

It’s even about that little boy in 1955 who nobody recognized at first–Emmett.

The messed-up part? There are so many more.”

This book is a great book to refer to when trying to discuss the issues with race. This book even gave me ideas on how to explain race and the issues African Americans have with cops. I don’t have any more words for this story because they fail me but I say that the theme song that would go with this book is Nikes by: Frank Ocean.
