16-year-old Starr Carter is caught between two worlds. She lives in a poor neighbourhood with her family but attends an expensive private school where she’s one of the only black students. After a party one night, her unarmed friend Khalil is shot and murdered by a police officer. Starr is the only witness. THE HATE U GIVE, the Black Lives Matter novel of the year, cracked the New York Times bestseller list directly after publication, has been published in 20 countries so far, and has a movie adaptation in the works. Angie Thomas is a first-time guest at the ilb and will be presenting THE HATE U GIVE for the first time in Germany. “A stunning, brilliant, gut-wrenching novel that will be remembered as a classic of our time” (John Green).
