From The Booth

What happens when a teenage girl from a blended family witnesses her male African American friend shot and killed by a white policeman? Starr (Amandla Stenberg) is that girl, immediately thrown into a ball of confusion that ranges from mourning, outrage, and fear as she becomes the central figure in this event, a racial dilemma that rages daily in America. Adapted from Angie Thomas’ 2017 novel, The Hate U Give addresses ongoing racism in America, but could speak to racism everywhere. Most Highly Recommended.
