Somehow I read On the Come Up before this and had really liked it. So I decided to check out #TheHateUGive and liked it just as much. It's definitely centered around a tough subject so the story gets very emotional at times, but there's also many times I laughed or smiled too. The main character Starr is fantastic. She's an awesome role model for younger readers. This book should be required reading in all high schools across the United States.
