Inspiration comes from many avenues. In our WISE Bookshelf feature, members share some of the titles that have encouraged them to think outside of the box, try a new approach or dig down deep for the confidence they needed to make that big decision, or simply allowed them a reprieve from the daily grind. Happy reading!
The Hate U Give
Author: Angie Thomas
Equal parts enjoyable and heart-wrenching, this quick read has it all: compelling characters, hard-hitting truth, laughs (lots), tears (lots more), and life-changing insight into the life of an African-American teenage girl. Read it before you go see it!
