This is a big week for me with my virtual launch on Thursday and The Perfect Trip releasing on Friday. You can also find me today over at Middle Grade Minded where I talked about how I used me real life to create this story.
I didn't have much extra reading time, but when the notification came from Overdrive that I could download The Hate U Give, I had to read it immediately.
This powerful, heart breaking, eye opening novel should be required reading. It is the story of sixteen year old Starr Carter who is the only witness to the police shooting of one of her oldest friends. After the murder, Starr has to decide whether to allow the media and police to portray her friend as an armed drug dealer or to tell the truth, take a stand, and put her life and the lives of her friends and family in danger.
