"I am using the Kindle and to be honest I love it. It's so much easier to read and have in my bag. I think it's helping me not give up on books since I don't lose my place ever." ~ Alasia, San Francisco

  • The title of the book is The hate U give. This is the story of Starr who is the person who changed her neighborhood. She wants to stop racism but polices, harming people get in the way. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested how people treated others. Here is one from the book ¨what the point of having a voice if you're going be silent in those moments you should not be?' I like this quote because it shows how Starr will stand up for herself. I liked this book because it talks about racism and how people got treated. This book reminds me of how back then was because back then white people would treat black people differently. This book teaches us that everyone could make a change. ~ Melissa, Oakland
