Here’s some good news for 2018. Angie Thomas’ acclaimed young adult novel “The Hate U Give” (National Book Award longlist) is being made into a movie and filming has wrapped so it won’t be long now. Don’t wait until the story hits theaters. Read the book now. I had heard so many wonderful things about this book, but, being a Louisiana book reviewer and Thomas hails from Mississippi, I had other books ahead of it on the to-be-read pile.
