Book Trailer Thursday: THE HATE U GIVE by Angie Thomas

Angie Thomas’s debut, The Hate U Give, was released last week after much anticipation; with a movie in the works, the popularity of this already-popular novel will only continue to grow. Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, Thomas tackles important issues. Thanks to the trailer, we get to learn more about the author behind the #1 New York Times Bestseller as she tells us seven fun facts about herself, including a snippet of a rap that will be used in her next book. Michael Cart, in his starred Booklist review, calls The Hate U Give an “inarguably important book that demands the widest possible readership.” This is one book you definitely don’t want to miss.
