Hate is such a strong word by Sarah Ayoub

Hate is such a strong word Seventeen-year-old Sophie hates Monday mornings, socks worn with sandal, and having to strategise  like she is a battle sergeant every time she asks her parents if she can go out. But she especially hates being stereotyped because she is Lebanese.

When New Guy, Shehadie Goldsmith, is alienated at her Lebanese school because his dad’s Australian, she hates the way it makes her feel.

Like she is as prejudiced as everyone else.

Like she could make a difference if she stopped pretending she’s invisible.

Like the attraction between them might be too strong to fight………

But hate is such a strong word….Can Sophie find the strength to speak out – even if it means going against everything she has been brought up to believe?
