We hope you know by now that THE HATE U GIVE is becoming a movie—we’ve been following along pretty closely, because duh. But we finally got our first look at when the trailer dropped this weekend at the BET Awards and if you thought the book was an emotional, tear your heart out ride, wait until you see this. Seriously, we were getting teary-eyed the second Khalil came on screen.
Apparently, we weren’t the only ones feeling this. Watch the trailer below, and then scroll down and take a look at some of our fave Twitter reactions!
