The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
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.

Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr. But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life. ~Synopsis taken from Goodreads.com

Teens ages 13-18 are welcome to sign up to join the Peachtree City Library’s Teen Virtual Book Club. Teens will meet once per month to read and discuss books in the Young Adult genre. All meetings will be conducted by phone and last between 30-45 minutes. A toll free phone number and access code will be sent by email to participants on the morning of the book discussion.

Registration Required.
