It’s a star for Starr! The Hate U Give received a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly.
I picked up this book on a whim and all I can say is wow, I am so glad I did. While I have heard the media coverage of the senseless violence against black youth, I never truly felt engaged in the argument. As many stories as I heard, I found myself trying to justify the cops actions. Your book has opened me up to the side I had not considered, and completely changed my views on the issue of systematic racism we face today. As they say, when you remain neutral in situations of injustice, you have sided with the oppressor. I can proudly say I no longer remain neutral, and I have your novel to thank for that. I loved your book cover to cover and look forward for you to publish more. You have a gift of not just writing, but truly opening others eyes to the opposite side.
