The Hate U Give is a book by Angie Thomas. The theme of the hate u give is some people get treated and looked at differently because of their skin color. Examples of this happening is when khalil was in the car with starr officer 115 came up to khalil and started questioning him and started assuming he's a drug dealer so then he makes khalil step out and then officer 115 shoots khalil 3 times. Starr goes to a white prep school there she has to talk proper and watch how she acts or she be seen as a stereotype the “loud angry ghetto black girl” she is being stereotyped based of her color and race which ties in to my thesis.

While Fleischman subtly brings the characters’ biases and preconceived stereotypes to the surface, he also dispels them through the characters’ interactions. For example, Amir once believed that Polish women simply “cooked lots of cabbage” (Fleischman para. 4), until he meets a Polish woman and realizes “how much richness [the stereotype] hid” (para. 5). The author brings the preconceived stereotype to the reader’s attention as Amir recalls how he judged Polish women purely based on city gossip without having met them in person. However, Fleischman dispels this notion when Amir talks to a Polish woman and learns of the hardships she had faced throughout the Holocaust, allowing him to see that there is more to the Polish woman than the insignificant

This novel was exceptionally peculiar, which made the book nearly impossible to predict and held my attention until the very end. Matthew Quick was able to write a story I could easily relate to because of my passion towards basketball and common hardships teenagers endure. Moreover, frequent scenarios within the novel showed realistic struggles within violence that are very relatable and realistic in the 21st century. For instance, the internal struggles of high schoolers such as jealousy and trying to fit in. On top of this, it was astounding to see all three dynamic characters, Russ, Erin, and Finley develop throughout the story, as all three grew their friendship and learned from one another leaving you breathless.
