8 starred reviews Goodreads Choice Awards Best of the Best William C. Morris Award Winner National Book Award Longlist Printz Honor Book Coretta Scott King Honor Book #1 New York Times Bestseller! Absolutely riveting! –Jason Reynolds Stunning. –John Green This story is necessary. This story is important. –Kirkus (starred review) Heartbreakingly topical. –Publishers Weekly (starred review) A marvel of verisimilitude. –Booklist (starred review) A powerful, in-your-face novel. –Horn Book (starred review) 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. And don’t miss On the Come Up, Angie Thomas’s powerful follow-up to The Hate U Give.
