NEWS / 1 February 2019

This month's Library Book Club choice is "The Hate U Give" by Angie Thomas and it was also released in film last year. Students can borrow it from the Library. 

According to goodreads.com, the book asks: "What's the point of having a voice if you're gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn't be?"

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."
