YA Book Club: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Welcome to the Astoria Bookshop YA Book Club! We'll be reading books published for readers ages 12 and up. The book club is open to everyone.

This month we are reading The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas - available for 10% off!

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.

Hailed as "necessary" and "important" by Kirkus Reviews (starred review), this book is definitely a hot topic and will lead to a discussion you don't want to miss.
