Depending on the pronoun you use, you need to use the correct conjugation. Hebben is plural and is only used with jullie in this case, since that is the second person plural.

Because boek is neuter and always uses het when it's singular, also have a look at: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/3732938

You can use jullie hebben though, since that's the right conjugation for plural.
