User's comment:

Ridgecrest 8th grade teacher sends out the summer reading list to his class recommending "The Hate U Give", by Angie Thomas. The author recounts that this fictional book was inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement. It is not based on fact and focuses on negativity toward police, therefore, biasing young readers who may have minimal contact with law enforcement.
