Hi guys! Welcome to another Author’s Echo, where I share to you some of the quotes I liked from a particular author! This week’s focus is on Angie Thomas, the author of the book The Hate U Give (here is a link to my book review of it click me.) And oh boy! I found a lot of phrases that I love in that book! As usual, I will share to you guys the ones that I like the most.
“Once you’ve seen how broken someone is it’s like seeing them naked—you can’t look at them the same anymore.”
“Sometimes you can do everything right and things will still go wrong. The key is to never stop doing right.”
“What’s the point of having a voice if you’re gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn’t be?”
“At an early age I learned that people make mistakes, and you have to decide if their mistakes are bigger than your love for them.”
“Brave doesn’t mean you’re not scared, Starr,” she says. “It means you go on even though you’re scared. And you’re doing that.”
Angie Thomas was born, raised, and still resides in Jackson, Mississippi. She is a former teen rapper whose greatest accomplishment was an article about her in Right-On Magazine. She holds a BFA in Creative Writing from Belhaven University but can still rap if needed. Her debut Young Adult novel, The Hate U Give, will be published by Balzer + Bray/HarperCollins on February 28, 2017.
