The movie trailer for the adaptation of The Hate U Give is now up on YouTube!
We’ll have to wait until October for the movie, but I’m so excited to see this! With stellar cast members like Amandla Stenberg as Starr and Anthony Mackie as King, I have high hopes that this story will be effectively brought to life.
The Hate U Give is about 16-year-old Starr’s struggles as a young black girl in the aftermath of her good friend’s death by police shooting. I reviewed this book here, and I highly recommend it! It’s a very solid YA novel which manages to effectively deal with very nuanced and sensitive issues. This was a debut novel by Angie Thomas, whose next book, On the Come Up is scheduled to be released February of 2019.
