WHY AM I NOT SHOCKED?

THE HATE U GIVE BANNED BY TEXAS SCHOOL DISTRICT


Angie Thomas is having quite the year. Her debut novel The Hate U Give debuted to widespread critical acclaim. It nabbed the number one spot on the New York Times list for young adult best-sellers and has enjoyed a comfortable 38 week stay on that list to date. It made the longlist for the National Book Award for young people’s literature and was the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award winner for fiction. It’s even been optioned for film adaptation. In rather less exciting news, The Hate U Give has been banned from the Katy Independent School District in Texas.

  1. I've been waiting to hear something like this about The Hate U Give. I wish I could put this book in the hands of all those kids and their parents.

  2. It's absolutely ridiculous that this still happens this day in age. Seriously makes me angry!

  3. Bookish news that has reached us here in the UK.

    I have mixed feelings about this, soooo angry that a book should be banned and yet I can't help but think what better publicity. I mean how many more people will now read the book simply out of curiosity or even in order to say they have read a banned book?

  4. Thank you! Having loved the first one, and liking the scary message which was that there was no reason for these people to be doing what they did and just doing it "because you were home" and because "they can" was a very scary subject and even watch movies online cartoon
    Psychologists started looking into it as soon as the first Strangers movie was released.
