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.
Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.
But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.
And don't miss On the Come Up, Angie Thomas's powerful follow-up to The Hate U Give.

    Really enjoyed this book. It shed light on the current BLM movement and gave the perspective from a 16 year old girl. Great read for young adults, but I think any age could enjoy it.

    Disappointing. We downloaded this book to listen to on a family road trip (my 3 kids are teenagers). It is NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY due to the sexual content and appalling language. We felt like we were being verbally assaulted over and over again. We couldn't even finish listening to it, despite our interest in the characters. The foul language was not necessary to the plot development, and the F word was used so many times it felt like auditory rape. As for narration, my daughter didn't like the narrator's voice, but the rest of us thought she did a good job.

    Great book. The problem I have with this is why don't they have the audio labeled by chapters if you need to go back or something. The fact that they want you to pay it needs to be better quality coming from their end. The narrator is great but she is a slow reader so this is drug out way more than necessary.
