    Wow. Just wow. In my life so far, I've had the opportunity to experience many different things, but there are certain things I'll never get/have to experience. For example, I'll never experience childbirth, not that I'm complaining, although I once had a cortisone shot in my hip fle...

    1. NO IT WAS NOT ?a very important book?; it took an important issue and made it relatively black and white. Issues with cops will never be solved when presented in this 1-dimensional, one-sided, liberal-view point that relies ON FEELINGS AND IGNORES FACTS. For a REAL depiction of ...

    Video review (6 Reasons To Read It)- https://youtu.be/XM_c3_KTEX4 YES. Read this. Not only is this a timely and powerful story, but Angie Thomas has the writing range of a seasoned pro. Starr's voice is refreshing, real, and relatable. This book had some of the most well devel...

    More like a 4.5 :). I loved this book so much. It made me see things from a different perspective. It educated me. ...

    For all the white people who said this book was racist, let me tell you one thing : racism was invented by white people. You can feel prejudiced or discriminated against, but don?t call it racism. I?m a biracial person - hi my dad?s family?s from Vietnam. And as a biracial p...

    ***Special congrats to Angie Thomas for wiping the floor with her competition in the GR Choice Awards 2017!*** 16-year-old Starr Carter's life unravels when she becomes sole witness to the brutal murder of her childhood friend, Khalil Harris. Khalil was an unarmed black boy gunned d...

    I want to put this book in everybody's hands. It is so important and SO good. I cannot stress this enough. Anything I say won't even do the book justice. Just know this is a standout novel that will take the world by storm. It is the best book I have read in years by far. I cannot reco...

    This was an amazing book and completely understand why everyone has been raving about it! It will make you laugh with all the Harry Potter references, cry with all the horrible things that happen and will bring us all closer in our hate for Hailey (kidding... kinda :P) 4.5? ...

    UPDATE DEC 4/5, 2017 Yesterday I found out that this book has been banned in a Texas school district (Katy ISD). And honestly??? I?m so angry right now. Y?all probably don?t know this, but I was born and currently live in Texas (hence my use of the word ?y?all?), so I?...

    I love this book! You will, too! Plenty of others have done a great job summarizing the story, so I won't waste your time with a synopsis. But you should know that this book transported me - I cared so deeply about the characters that it was disorienting when I lifted my eyes from t...

    Reread. Can we just give Angie Thomas all of the awards right now? ...

    1. NO IT WAS NOT ?a very important book?; it took an important issue and made it relatively black and white. Issues with cops will never be solved when presented in this 1-dimensional, one-sided, liberal-view point that relies ON FEELINGS AND IGNORES FACTS. For a REAL depiction of ...

    The truth casts a shadow over the kitchen?people like us in situations like this become hashtags, but they rarely get justice. I think we all wait for that one time though, that one time when it ends right. Maybe this can be it. There are those books that are important and timely...

    This is a MUST READ for 2017 releases. I absolutely adored this book. I truly don't feel like it has a single flaw. Every topic addressed was approach so wonderfully and did not hold back. If you're looking for a diverse read that stands out amongst most YA, The Hate U Give is t...

    ?What's the point of having a voice if you're gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn't be?? Every white person on this planet needs to read this book. "Lack of opportunities. Corporate America don't bring jobs to our communities, and they damn sure ain't quick to hire u...

    ??A hairbrush is not a gun.?? This doesn?t make any sense. And I hope that to you, too, it will not make any sense. Starr may only be sixteen, but she has already witnessed two murders in her life: the first of a young black girl in a drive by and the second of a youn...

    This was such a heartbreakingly honest account of what is happening in America right now. As a white reader, the experience this story affords its readers cannot be taken for granted. Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this book takes you into the heart of Garden Heights afte...

    This is a book I've been avoiding reviewing. I finished The Hate U Give a while back, rated it two stars, but never dared write any of my thoughts about it - why? Because every single review I've seen of this book is 4 stars or above and showers it in seemingly endless praise. When ...

    Update 11/1/2017 I wanted to just clarify a few things from my original review bc I feel like some things were lost in translation ha i'm not going to be like deleting mass amounts of the review, just adding like little captions for further explanation. All the opinions are my ...

    When you're reading books like The Hate U Give, you're truly reading someone's brave decision against silence. This book has made me feel every single possible emotion at the same time. It was truly incredible and I have SO MUCH to say about it I wish I could actually just send e...

    A thoughtful, honest and fantastic book. One of 2017's shining stars for sure. Highly, highly recommend. ...

    This is one of the best audiobooks I've listened to all year. If you are considering reading this one, listen to it. You wont regret it. ...

    This has got to be one of the most hyped books in the existence of YA evers. And you know what? It is 5000% WORTHY of that hype and more and basically get thee to this book and read it as soon as possible. It perfectly combines a really important story about #BlackLivesMatter and speak...

    Wow. Just wow. In my life so far, I've had the opportunity to experience many different things, but there are certain things I'll never get/have to experience. For example, I'll never experience childbirth, not that I'm complaining, although I once had a cortisone shot in my hip fle...

    It has taken me a long while to compose this review, because this book is the most powerful book I've ever read. It is important, educational, and happening in our world right now as you're reading this review. If you can only read one book in 2017, please pick this one. This b...

    congratulations, 2017 goodreads choice winner in both best YA fiction AND best debut goodreads author!! i rarely read realistic YA - if i?m going to read YA, i prefer fantasy or survival stuff where teens are in peril. but this was recommended to me by too many people to put aside...

    When you read a 444 page book in one day bc you can?t put it down. Powerful. Yeah, I don?t think I can write a review for this one other than to say everyone (of a certain age/maturity) should read this. Poignant, important and timely. ...

    Video review (6 Reasons To Read It)- https://youtu.be/XM_c3_KTEX4 YES. Read this. Not only is this a timely and powerful story, but Angie Thomas has the writing range of a seasoned pro. Starr's voice is refreshing, real, and relatable. This book had some of the most well devel...

    More like a 4.5 :). I loved this book so much. It made me see things from a different perspective. It educated me. ...

    For all the white people who said this book was racist, let me tell you one thing : racism was invented by white people. You can feel prejudiced or discriminated against, but don?t call it racism. I?m a biracial person - hi my dad?s family?s from Vietnam. And as a biracial p...

    ***Special congrats to Angie Thomas for wiping the floor with her competition in the GR Choice Awards 2017!*** 16-year-old Starr Carter's life unravels when she becomes sole witness to the brutal murder of her childhood friend, Khalil Harris. Khalil was an unarmed black boy gunned d...

    I want to put this book in everybody's hands. It is so important and SO good. I cannot stress this enough. Anything I say won't even do the book justice. Just know this is a standout novel that will take the world by storm. It is the best book I have read in years by far. I cannot reco...

    This was an amazing book and completely understand why everyone has been raving about it! It will make you laugh with all the Harry Potter references, cry with all the horrible things that happen and will bring us all closer in our hate for Hailey (kidding... kinda :P) 4.5? ...

    UPDATE DEC 4/5, 2017 Yesterday I found out that this book has been banned in a Texas school district (Katy ISD). And honestly??? I?m so angry right now. Y?all probably don?t know this, but I was born and currently live in Texas (hence my use of the word ?y?all?), so I?...

    I love this book! You will, too! Plenty of others have done a great job summarizing the story, so I won't waste your time with a synopsis. But you should know that this book transported me - I cared so deeply about the characters that it was disorienting when I lifted my eyes from t...

    Reread. Can we just give Angie Thomas all of the awards right now? ...

    I'm feeling so many things at once that I can't quite put it into words, but I can say that I absolutely loved this book! ...
