Summary
International phenomenon Angie Thomas revisits Garden Heights seventeen years before the events of The Hate U Give in this searing and poignant exploration of Black boyhood and manhood. If thereђ́ةs one thing seventeen-year-old Maverick Carter knows, it́ђةs that a real man takes care of his family. As the son of a former gang legend, Mav does that the only way he knows how: dealing for the King Lords. With this money he can help his mom, who works two jobs while his dadђ́ةs in prison. Lifeђ́ةs not perfect, but with a fly girlfriend and a cousin who always has his back, Mavђ́ةs got everything under control. Until, that is, Maverick finds out heђ́ةs a father. Suddenly he has a baby, Seven, who depends on him for everything. But it́ђةs not so easy to sling dope, finish school, and raise a child. So when heђ́ةs offered the chance to go straight, he takes it. In a world where heђ́ةs expected to amount to nothing, maybe Mav can prove heђ́ةs different. When King Lord blood runs through your veins, though, you can't just walk away. Loyalty, revenge, and responsibility threaten to tear Mav apart, especially after the brutal murder of a loved one. Heђ́ةll have to figure out for himself what it really means to be a man
