I rated The Hate U Give a 5 out of 5 for a few reasons. This book follows Starr Carter and her journey as she has two different personalities, she lives in a poor neighborhood but goes to a white school with rich people. The book is also about how she fights for justice for her friend Khalil who gets shot by a police officer unjustly. At first, she is afraid of speaking out but then she realizes that she must stand up for her friend as he would have done the same for her. She has also gone through a lot of things as when she was small.  Her other best friend was also shot in a drive-by shooting. 

The book itself is scary and realistic as you think of how this could happen in real life. I enjoyed the story and how she fights for Khalil and overcomes obstacles whether they are in her mind, or they are the police. This book is intended for teens and people who can relate to her story.
