In this prequel to The Hate U Give, set in 1998, Starr's father Maverick Carter takes center stage. When 17-year-old Mav learns that he is the father to a three-month-old baby, he must decide whether to continue dealing for the King Lords or forge his own path. Above all, Mav wants to take care of his family, and either choice could come with deadly consequences. Fans of The Hate U Give will enjoy learning more about Mav and Garden Heights, but Concrete Rose stands on its own and is highly recommended for fans of realistic fiction.
