This hard-hitting prequel to the award-winning The Hate You Give - from the international phenomenon Angie Thomas - tells the story of Maverick Carter, Starr's father, as a teenager growing up in Garden Heights. The son of a drug king, seventeen-year-old Maverick Carter is negoti...ating life in Garden Heights as he balances school, slinging dope, and working two jobs while his dad is in prison. He's got it all under control - until, that is, Mav finds out he's a father. Suddenly he has a baby, Seven, who depends on him for everything. Loyalty, revenge and responsibility threaten to tear Mav apart, especially after the brutal murder of a loved one. So when Mav is offered the chance to go straight, it's an opportunity - in a world where he's expected to amount to nothing - to prove he's different and figure out for himself what it really means to be a man.
