The Hate U Give

People will tell you that "The Hate U Give" by Angie Thomas is about race issues. Heck, the author herself will tell you that "The Hate U Give" is about race issues. And yet here I am to tell you that  "The Hate U Give" is about so much more than race.

I'm not trying to make light of the very weighty issue, which the book handles beautifully, BTW. It's just that to me the themes that came forward were family, love, the bond between father and daughter, the definition of friendship, the duty you have to people around you.

I loved the author's voice, I loved the characters, I loved the message.
