That’s What She Read

Serena and Ravena, two friends with vastly different reading habits, lay it all on the line when chatting about the current books gracing their nightstands and nooks.

Episode 71, The Hate U Give

Posted by thatswhatsheread in books, teen fiction, young adult, fiction

Life makes regular podcasting hard, y'all. We've promised not to avoid the tough topics, but immersing ourselves in this riveting, thoughtful read was challenging when every day we seemed to hear about a new black person being murdered by the police. Ravena and I finally got our acts together and buckled down to read The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. We think you'll be able to tell how much we loved and appreciated this book when you hear us gush (rant...excitedly ramble). Essential. Read it and join the conversation.
