Waiting on Wednesday: The Hate U Give

Waiting on Wednesday was created by Breaking the Spine
Sixteen-year-old Starr lives in two worlds: the poor neighbourhood where she was born and raised and her posh high school in the suburbs. The uneasy balance between them is shattered when Starr is the only witness to the fatal shooting of her unarmed best friend, Khalil, by a police officer. Now what Starr says could destroy her community. It could also get her killed. Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this is a powerful and gripping YA novel about one girl's struggle for justice. Movie rights have been sold to Fox, with Amandla Stenberg (The Hunger Games) to star.
Why I'm Waiting
This isn't my typical genre, but this book was making waves as soon as it was announced and I think it's going to be a very important book for multiple reasons.

The Hate U Give is released February 28th, 2017, and you can preorder it here.


  1. I'm really interested in this one, too.

    1. Yeah, it's not my typical genre but it sounds like a good book and an important one.

  2. This one has been getting a lot of buzz. I put it on my TBR list a few weeks ago because I’m curious. I hope it lives up to the hype.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Me too, because if it doesn't I feel like that will crush a lot more people than normally a book might.
