  1. The Hate U Give
  2. On The Come UP

The Hate U Give tells the compelling story of Starr Carter, a black teenager navigating two distinct worlds: her predominantly black neighbourhood and her predominantly white private school. When she witnesses the unjust killing of her unarmed friend Khalil by a police officer, Starr's world is shattered. Thomas masterfully weaves a narrative that explores systemic racism, police brutality, and the enduring resilience of marginalised communities.

One of the novel's most significant achievements is its portrayal of Starr's personal growth and her journey toward self-empowerment. As she finds her voice and confronts the fear and oppression surrounding her, readers witness the transformative power of speaking out against injustice. Starr's internal conflict, as she grapples with her identity and battles against the pressure to conform, resonates deeply with readers from diverse backgrounds.

Moreover, Thomas skillfully humanises her characters, allowing readers to connect with their experiences on an emotional level. Through Starr's perspective, the novel provides a nuanced exploration of the emotional trauma and resilience that comes with living in a society plagued by racial inequality. By shedding light on the ripple effects of police violence, The Hate U Give urges readers to challenge societal norms and cultivate empathy for marginalised communities.

In On the Come Up, Angie Thomas presents another gripping narrative, this time focusing on the life of Bri Jackson, a talented young rapper from the same neighbourhood as Starr. Thomas delves into themes of poverty, systemic oppression, and the power of artistic expression.

Through Bri's journey, Thomas explores the complexities of finding one's voice and identity in a world that tries to define and limit individuals based on their background. As Bri pursues her dream of becoming a successful rapper, she faces numerous challenges, from poverty and violence to stereotypes and racial profiling. The novel portrays her unwavering determination to rise above these obstacles while staying true to herself.

By highlighting the significance of hip-hop culture and its potential for social commentary, Thomas provides a platform for marginalised voices to be heard. Bri's lyrics serve as powerful tools of self-expression, allowing her to confront the issues she faces while inspiring others to do the same. Through her art, Bri becomes a symbol of resilience, reminding readers of the power of creativity and the importance of never giving up.

Angie Thomas' novels, The Hate U Give and On the Come Up, have had a profound impact on readers, sparking discussions on vital social issues. Through richly drawn characters and powerful narratives, Thomas addresses topics such as racial injustice, identity, and the transformative power of self-expression. These books serve as mirrors reflecting the realities of marginalised communities while also acting as windows, inviting readers from all backgrounds to empathise and engage in meaningful dialogue. Angie Thomas' works remind us of the enduring power of literature to foster understanding, promote social justice, and inspire change.

Description from the publisher:

The Hate U Give
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.

Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this is a powerful and gripping YA novel about one girl's struggle for justice.

On The Come UP
Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. As the daughter of an underground hip-hop legend who died right before he hit big, Bri’s got massive shoes to fill. But when her first song goes viral for all the wrong reasons, Bri finds herself at the centre of controversy and portrayed by the media as more menace than MC. And with an eviction notice staring her family down, Bri no longer just wants to make it – she has to. Even if it means becoming the very thing the public has made her out to be.
