Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Maverick Carter’s life is turned upside down when he finds out he’s a father at 17. Mav struggles to work, go to school, and be the best father he can.

Angie Thomas’ prequel to The Hate U Give shows the reality of dealing with teen parenting, poverty, and surviving in a neighborhood that is run by gang rules while being funny and somehow uplifting. It’s not just that I know Mav has a future from THUG, it’s Thomas’ writing. Even when Mav makes bad decisions, the reader can feel his desire to be a good dad, boyfriend, son.

I loved this story. It’s heart wrenching and yet stirring to watch Mav grow up and make the decisions that will make him the father and husband seen in THUG.
