The Hate U Give (out Jan 31) is a little preachy in places but it's still a very strong young adult drama about an African American girl who must decide what to do after seeing her unarmed friend shot and killed by a police officer. Amandla Stenberg gives a superb lead performance. There's lots to take away from this. Grade: B+.
