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.

As the daughter of an underground hip hop legend who died right before he hit big, Bri's got massive shoes to fill. But when her first song goes viral for all the wrong reasons, Bri finds herself at the centre of controversy and portrayed by the media as more menace than MC.

I want to give those kids more books to see themselves in."The Hate U Give has been on the New York Times bestseller list since publication.
