Reply to "What are you reading?"

“The Hate U Give” by Angie Thomas.  Nice work of fiction that sadly plays out as truth on our streets all too often.  Young adult targeted book that reads well and keeps the attention of adults and young alike.  About a black teenager that witnesses not one but two of her best friends die. One by a gangbanger and another by a cop.  Justice is not found for either of them. Riots ensue. Lots of interesting "black on black" types of conversations. Frank discussions.  Gives you a glimpse of what it is like to be black in an urban and impoverished setting in America. Recommended.
