The Hate you give. Angie Thomas. (grades 8 and up)
Call Number FIC THO (YA)
This book will be made into a movie this year so plan on reading the book before it hits the big screen.
Straddling two worlds - her predominantly white, private school and her home neighborhood which is poor and mostly black, Starr Carter is the only one who really knows what happened when her friend Khalil is shot by a police officer.
Middle School Reads
The Six. Mark Alpert (grades 6-8) (Part 1 of Trilogy)
Call Number FIC ALP
In a futuristic experiment, the Army takes intellectually capable students whose bodies are suffering, and downloads their intellect (and feelings) into robots capable of combatting the malevolent AI that is trying to take over the world. Great opener for an ethical discussion of right and wrong in our ever increasing technological world as well as being a great adventure story for our teen readers.
