Our final spotlight title for Black History Month this year is The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas.
Among many accolades, this debut novel was nominated for both the National Book Award and the Kirkus Prize, and a host of other awards.
- The Hate You Give explores complicated community relationships in the aftermath of the police shooting of an unarmed black youth.
- This is my ‘must read’ pick of all of the (American) Young Adult titles from last year.
- If you have a Netflix account, then I highly recommend that you watch the Netflix documentary 13th after reading this. They are brilliant companion pieces.
