Help me give my students a current and top selling novel that is relevant to them and today’s society. I am the 7th grade reading and social studies teacher and would love to have them read this novel!

My school is a neighborhood school that has been in existence for over 100 years. We are a community where many of our current parents were former students. Many of our teachers have been at the school for more than 20 years. We are a school that has a low mobility rate for both staff and students. Most of our families live below the poverty line and many of our students are learning English as their second language. We also have approximately 20% of our students receiving special educational services.
Although we face many challenges that come with being an urban school, this would not be the first thing you noticed as you walked through our doors.
Our classrooms are vibrant with both teachers and students striving to give and receive the best education possible.
As the 7th grade reading, writing, and social studies teacher, I was looking for the students to do a novel study/literature circle. The stories in the literature textbook are boring and the kids hate them. I think "The Hate You Give" would be totally relevant to the current issue going on in society today regarding police brutality and racial profiling. I will be able to incorporate this into all the subjects that I teach. It is my hope that the students will really take an interest in this top selling novel because it is truly relevant to societal issues going on in the United States today.
