The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
Then there's Khalil. We've been friends since we were like three years old and don't think for one minute that he has ever let me forget that he's older than me (only by a few months). So, Kenya's giving me flack about not hanging and wouldn't you know it. The one time I do decide to, I run into Khalil. See, it's been a minute since I've seen him. I just got so caught up in my other life. I run into him at this party in The Heights. We just hanging and catching up when...POP..POP...POP! Gun shots ring out and we hightail it out of there! We escape only to be faced with another threat, a least a threat to a young Black boy in South Central. If the gangs don't get you, the cops will. I'm Starr Carter and I want justice for Khalil.
