“We’re the ones who get the short end of the stick, but we’re the ones they fear the most.”
The Hate U Give is certainly a novel that should be included in every country’s required reading list for schools because of its authentic approach to the topics of unnecessary police violence, dark implications of the illegal drug industry and the enigmatic contemporary lives of African-Americans. It has been a long time since I read a book that sparked this kind of reaction in me and I am not ashamed to say that I am a THUG trash! In my opinion, Angie Thomas should be included among the ranks of modern classic writers such as Harper Lee and Maya Angelou.
