This year I’m running a crazy 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway Extravaganza whereby I giveaway a different book to one lucky winner for 12 days in the lead up to Christmas (and on the 26,27 and 28th December due to a slight delay at the start of the promotion).
Today’s book to be won as part of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway Extravaganza is a copy of The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas was one of the stand out books for all of 2018. This book had me so angry at the way the world worked, it made me cry and it’s something I truly believe everyone needs to read at least one. Angie Thomas is one author you don’t want to miss, because she has something to say, and you are going to hear it.
“What’s the point of having a voice if you’re gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn’t be?”
Sixteen-year-old Starr lives in two worlds: the poor neighbourhood where she was born and raised and her posh high school in the suburbs. The uneasy balance between them is shattered when Starr is the only witness to the fatal shooting of her unarmed best friend, Khalil, by a police officer. Now what Starr says could destroy her community. It could also get her killed.
