“Sometimes you can do everything right and things will still go wrong. The key is to never stop doing right.” - Angie Thomas, THE HATE U GIVE Happy Fall, y'all. I'm having a relaxing weekend re-reading THE HATE YOU GIVE by Angie Thomas as part of THUG-A-THON hosted by @ninetieslibrary. This was by far the most important book I read last year. Actually, probably one of the most important books I've read in my life. THUG is a book I feel like everyone should read. It's not an easy read, but there a moments of joy and empowerment interwoven in this heavy story. Starr's voice is clear as a bell from page 1, and in re-reading, I feel like I'm being reunited with an old friend. I think the Carters are my favorite fictional family. I love them all, especially Starr, Sekani and Maverick.
