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.

    I really liked this book a lot and how the narrator read it and how she brought it to life. This book made me cry and made me laugh. It also made me see how this is still going on now and how we all need to get together and fight the fight and Help each other.

    The book is a beautiful piece of work, it shares real and deep entrenched issues, I never followed these of black-matters so much because am in Africa, but after listening to this book, i want to be as informed as possible on the progress that is made in ensuring that justice is justice regardless of race. Narrator made me pay undivided attention. Its the book I have listened and followed so intently. I love its narration and the story-line. Thanks.
