The Hate U Give Press Reviews

The Hate U Give is going to be one of the most important books of 2017, no hyperbole, just facts. - Nikesh Shukla, writer and editor of The Good Immigrant -- Nikesh Shukla Completely gripping, hugely affecting and beautifully written, THUG encompasses race, violence, family and growing up and will surely be remembered as a defining YA book of our time. A must-read. - Anna Pool * The Pool * [...] a powerful look at racism in 21st-century America. * The Observer * It's hard to see how this won't be the young adult novel of the year, if not the decade. Angie Thomas, a former rapper and a debut novelist from Jackson, Mississippi, has written a startling, important book about what it is to be black in America that manages to speak to everyone. It is also a rollicking thriller and a deeply enjoyable read. No wonder it has been at the top of the New York Times's young adult bestseller list for weeks. [...] It's suitable for mature 14-year-olds and should fly on to curriculums everywhere, for Thomas has written a classic in the making that demands to be discussed. * The Times * Angie Thomas has written a stunning, brilliant, gut-wrenching novel that will be remembered as a classic of our time. * John Green *
