Fresh Batch (February 26th-March 4th)

Posted by

Fresh Batch, posted weekly, keeps you up to date on the hottest releases of the upcoming week.

Flavor of the week:

The Hate U Give
Angie Thomas
Publication date: February 28th 2017
by Balzer + Bray

Goodreads Purchase

Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, Angie Thomas’s searing debut about an ordinary girl in extraordinary circumstances addresses issues of racism and police violence with intelligence, heart, and unflinching honesty. Soon to be a major motion picture from Fox 2000/Temple Hill Productions.

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban 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. Khalil was unarmed.

Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

    I needed to draft you that little bit of observation in order to give many thanks once again about the marvelous strategies you’ve discussed in this article. It was certainly seriously generous with people like you to convey openly exactly what a lot of people might have distributed as an e-book in order to make some profit for their own end, certainly given that you could have done it in case you wanted. The thoughts likewise served to be a good way to understand that someone else have the same keenness like my own to find out good deal more in respect of this condition. Certainly there are numerous more fun times in the future for individuals that view your website.
