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.

    It is simply a great book with a wonderful story, this book totally writes the discrimination and life of black people and how our society acts. It gives a lot to think about and I am sure it can make many people reconsider and realize the problem as big as racism is.

Quotes

    Sometimes you can do everything right and things will still go wrong. The key is to never stop doing right

    And at the end of the day, you don’t kill someone for opening a car door. If you do, you shouldn’t be a cop.
    Noemi Alphonsehas quoted3 years ago
    That’s the problem. We let people say stuff, and they say it so much that it becomes okay to them and normal for us. What’s the point of having a voice if you’re gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn’t be?
