The #8 Bestselling Audiobook of 2017: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

The #8 bestselling audiobook of 2017 is The Hate U Give: the riveting story of Starr Carter, whose world is upended when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Everyone wants to know what really went down that night, and what Starr does or doesn’t say will impact her community and could endanger her life. Narrator Bahni Turpin brings this powerful narrative to life.


“Angie Thomas’ novel gives readers a complex narrative of life in a black community that is dealing with the intersectional traumas of mass incarceration, the war on drugs, police violence, and death. We follow 16-year-old Starr through her community of Garden Heights and as she tries to navigate black existence in the predominantly white, affluent high school where she spends most of her time. It is a powerfully written tale of coming to terms with the things outside of our control and all that which we can change.”
