No. 1 New York Times bestseller"A powerful and important novel." Observer "No one else who writes like Angie.

Phenomenal." The Guardian From international phenomenon Angie Thomas comes a hard-hitting return to Garden Heights with the story of Maverick Carter, Starr's father, set seventeen years before the events of the award-winning The Hate U Give. With his King Lord dad in prison and his mom working two jobs, seventeen-year-old Maverick Carter helps the only way he knows how: slinging drugs.

Life's not perfect, but he's got everything under control.

Until he finds out he's a father... Suddenly it's not so easy to deal drugs and finish school with a baby dependent on him for everything.

So when he's offered the chance to go straight, he takes it.

But when King Lord blood runs through your veins, you don't get to just walk away.
