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.
