THE HATE U GIVE by Angie Thomas: Week Four Discussion & Challenge

Welcome to our final discussion and challenge for THE HATE U GIVE by Angie Thomas!

CHAPTER 20:  Starr and Seven are suspended, but the real surprise is when they arrive home to the Cedar Grove King Lords and Garden Disciples meeting peacefully in their kitchen.  How do you think Mav managed this?

CHAPTER 21:  Starr's worlds collide at Seven's graduation and birthday party.  How did you think it went?  What did she learn from the encounter?

CHAPTER 22:  There is so much pain throughout this chapter.  Share what impacts you the most.

CHAPTER 23:  Responses to the grand jury verdict are exploding.  Starr feels like she needs to do something, but struggles with her response and what is going down around her.  As the reader/spectator, what were your thoughts?

CHAPTER 24:  Starr uses her voice as a weapon, just as Ms. Ofrah tells her to do.  Do you think it makes a difference?

CHAPTER 25:  The huge turn of events came when Mav snitched on the King Lord, followed by a multitude of neighbors to support the claim.  How did this change the feeling of the story as a whole?

CHAPTER 26:  The ending to this book was powerful in so many ways, but it wouldn't have been as powerful if the journey was not traveled from page one. How has this book changed your life or more simply, opened your eyes to a world different from your own?



After reading this book, what does it inspire you to do out in the real world to make it a better place?  How will you continue to challenge yourself?



Thank you so much for joining me on this journey this month!
