The Hate U Give is a great way of educating those who aren't fully aware, or choose to be ignorant of, what Black people experience in America. It was done in the most honest way, as Starr's race is a factor in every single interaction and decision she makes in this book, such as if she chooses to testify, how she acts at her posh school and who she dates. This shows how black people have no choice but to consider their race in everything they do and everything that happens to them, the uncertainty of not knowing whether your race is why something has happened to you, is just as distressing as blatant racism. Again, Hailey's character is a great way to show this grey area, so to speak.
I loved all of the characters so much (apart from Hailey, but she was very necessary), they were so well written, that it felt as though these characters had been existing before you picked up the book. I particularly loved the strong sense of community that Angie Thomas created around everyone in Starr's neighbourhood, as in areas like hers this is never showcased. This inclusion was so important, as it showed that these people have whole lives, dreams, people who love them, until they are reduced to a single hashtag.
I can't recommend this book enough, everyone should read it. The extra content in the Waterstones exclusive edition was equally as amazing, Angie Thomas truly has a gift. I just want to read everything she writes!!!!
