The Hate U Give Contest!
Starr Carter is constantly
switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black,
neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white,
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. Now, facing pressures from
all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice
and stand up for what’s right. The Hate U Give is
based on the critically acclaimed New York Times
bestseller by Angie Thomas.
The Hate U Give was
directed by George Tillman Jr., with screenplay written
by Audrey Wells based on the novel by Angie Thomas. The
film stars Amandla Stenberg, K.J. Apa, Regina Hall,
Anthony Mackie, Sabrina Carpenter, and Common.
