Really shocked me because it really happened to me once and it really is very ugly

What I’ve been thinking about since I started reading ” The Hate You Give ” by Angie Thomas is that in truth everything he’s saying in the book is pretty much the same as what’s happening right now and they’re killing black people and I really think that some police officers are really kind of racist.

In the second chapter of the book “The Hate You Give” by Angie Thomas I see that the author says “A handful of policemen talk on the phone, or write on computers or they stand still. Normal stuff, like Law & Order, but it takes my breath away. ” This sentence really shocked me because it really happened to me once and it really is very ugly to be surrounded by many policemen and some stare at you as if they know you.

I identified a lot with Star because in this sentence she says ” I want to do it today ” ” I want to finish it once ” this is not typical of how Star acts. She always acts quiet and calm her in what she is saying there is because she saw when her best friend was killed and she has to say everything she saw.

I think other people are not going to like the story very much because it is drama and in truth they are going to see people who in the first chapter are going to get bored but they made me want to continue reading the book. And also some of the things she talks about is what the police told her,  which is that the police killed her best friend and it is really bad.
