The Hate U Give was published in 2017 to critical acclaim and went on to win multiple awards. One reviewer, Shannon Ozimy wrote, “Ignore the YA label—this should be the one book everyone reads this year.” In Salon, Erin Keane said the novel is “topical, urgent, necessary, and if that weren’t enough, it’s also a highly entertaining and engaging read.” In the Christian Science Monitor, Kate Ward Beim-Esche wrote, “Believe the hype. The Hate U Give, Angie Thomas’s extraordinary and fearless debut, really is that good.”
