The Hate U Give
Angie Thomas

A relentless exploration of racial prejudice and finding your voice as a young adult. 16-year-old Starr is a black student attending an elite school with a white majority, always carefully presenting herself in order to fit in. When her friend is accidentally shot by a police officer in front of her eyes, Starr is not willing to return to her masquerade and instead publically rallies for an end to racial discrimination.
