This is a book cover that I’ve created of a book called The Hate You Give, by Angie Thomas. the book tells the story of sixteen-year-old Starr Carter, balancing her life between the poor turbulent neighbourhood and the fancy suburban prep school she attends, her life took a drastic turn after witnessing the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend, Khalil, by a white policeman. Starr is the only person who’s able to support and give Khalil justice over his actions. How did she react in a situation like this?
Throughout the book, the word “brave” was repeated over and over again by other people around Starr, complimenting her of being very brave for standing up for Khalil and not giving up. Starr, however, didn’t think herself as the brave girl others’ said she is, but thinks of herself as a coward. After going though the different interviews and chaoses around the neighbourhood, Starr learned to face the society and fight back against the hate people are giving to Khalil from an interview with the police officer who shot him.
