    Why we think it's Essential - Every now and then a book comes along that speaks to your soul. Angie Thomas' debut novel, The Hate U Give, is one such book. Each editor here has listened, and the feeling afterwards is unanimous - this is one of the best performances we've ever encountered. Thomas' message is both timely and transcendent. Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this book is important, necessary, fearless, and, quite simply, stunning. 

    Narrator Bahni Turpin manages to give voice to such a broad and rich cast of characters, each with their own authentic perspective, demonstrating the power of performance to bring new depth to a complex social issue. 

    We believe this is truly the definition of required listening.

    "Absolutely riveting!" (Jason Reynolds)

    "Stunning." (John Green)

    "This story is necessary. This story is important." (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

    "Heartbreakingly topical." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

    "A marvel of verisimilitude." (Booklist, starred review)

    "A powerful, in-your-face novel." (The Horn Book, starred review)

    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.

    "us against us"

    I loved this book and I'd wish all 16yo would read it. The narrator was amazing and I think it definitely added to the experience of this book and felt very authentic.
    However, beside the strong message behind it lacks on "quality"... sorry if I use this word but not sure how to describe it better... It wasn't really written in a compelling way to me. This book felt a bit stretched and could've easily been shorter.
    SAY NO TO RACISM.

    Required Reading

    Every person on this planet should read this book in order to understand what people of different races experience every single day of their lives. All the characters are fully developed. The fact that the parents are humans, with flaws but loving and supportive is commendable; the siblings challenges to define family, relationship questions never mind biracial relationships. Every topic for a teenager and thinking adult is in here.
    Well written!!

    This book is a must!

    Die Geschichte könnte aktueller nicht sein und öffnet die Augen für einen sehr realen und dunklen Teil der Lebensbedingungen der ‚black minority‘ in den USA.
    Als Hörbuch geht die Geschichte dank der fantastischen Sprecherin noch einmal deutlich mehr unter die Haut als bereits bei der Lektüre. Ein Buch, das man nicht vergisst!

    Das geht tief ins Herz...

    Sehr plastisch, herzlich und detailverliebt geschrieben. Ich war wirklich mitten drin im Erleben. Ich war die 16jährige Star und bin jeden Schritt mit ihr gegangen, weil es logisch war und klug erschien. Hinreißend und brandaktuell!!!

    A great book, that gets you thinking

    I really loved the audio version of "The hate U give" by Angie Thomas. It gives an insight in the life of 16-year old Star, a black girl, that has to witness the murder of her best friend. The book adresses topics like police violence, injustice, racism, clashes of cultures by telling a compelling story. The message of this bool is very powerful! I recommend it to everybody!

    Amazing experience

    From start to finish, I loved everything about it. The story was so well written and performed that it made me tear up and sometimes even cry outright. The characters aren’t perfect. The story isn’t nice. But it’s real.
    It made me feel, it made me think. Within a few hours it made me connect with the characters and care for them. It’s gonna stay with me for quite a while.
    I’m really happy I picked it up.

    Gripping, heartfelt and believable

    This book truly checks all the boxes for me:

    - GREAT CHARACTERS
    some endearing, others not so much, but all believable and all very much human (yes, this includes the dog)

    - AN ENTANGLING STORY
    I don’t want to spoiler anyone, so I’ll just say that while this story is written with so much empathy that it plays on all your heartstrings, your intellect will never feel unchallenged and the writing style makes it as easy to follow as it makes the experience enjoyable.
    I am truly impressed with how heartfelt and authentic and non biased this story is (Star complains about the media only shows the worst parts of her home, while to her it’s also caring neighbors, the best red velvet cake and Mr. Lewis Barbershop).
    It’s hard to get this across without giving too many examples and therefore spoilers, but the variety of reasons and motivations really is one of the points that stand out to me in this book.

    - A STRONG MESSAGE
    I LOVE a story that somewhere somehow hasn’t given up on making the world a little bit of a better place.
    With a main character that attends a bougy private school in the suburbs but lives in the ”ghetto” this book paints a picture of black and white living in the US with its differences and injustice - without making the painting black and white. (pun intended)
    The story wants to raise awareness for inequality and the racism that resides on top of the minds of some and in the back of the minds of many.
    It wants to make a change and will have you rooting alongside the lead characters for all the right reasons.

    And finally A WONDERFUL READER.
    Bahni Turpin did an amazing job in making this audiobook a joy to listen to and cry and laugh along.
