Explore different cultures through fiction. Copies of The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas are available to check out from the Customer Service Desk. About the Book: 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. Check out the library website for more information on this and other library programs.
