My Reading List, The Books

#BookToMovieTrailer – ‘The Hate U Give’

So, here’s the thing — this book has been on my radar since not long after Angie Thomas made her phenomenal literary debut in Black History Month 2017.  But I did not read it.  I thought I wasn’t interested.

Until I saw this trailer.

It is because of this trailer that I made The Hate U Give my book club reading selection for July.  I must admit, I am a bit out of touch with the younger generation.  I am in awe of how effortlessly Thomas penned their voices and spirit.  This is a book that will be required reading for my children.  Starr and her friends give me hope.

I am so excited for the film, which is set to be released on October 19.
