              N GARDEN HEIGHTS, TO BE A BOY implies, from a very early age, to prove that you are a man. Loyalty to your gang, to your family, to your ideals, its a weight that threatens to bring you down every day. Maverick Carter understands it in the most heartbreaking way. Angie Thomas exp...lores masculinity and the painful transition to adulthood in the prequel to her bestseller The Hate You Give. If there is one thing that Maverick Carter knows, its that a real man takes care of his family. As the son of an old gang legend, Mav does it the only way he knows how: dealing for the King Lords. With the help he gets, he can help his mother, while his father is serving a sentence in prison. Life isn't perfect, but thanks to his girlfriend and his cousin, who protect him, Mav seems to have everything under control. Until he finds out he's a father. Suddenly, he has a baby who depends on him for everything and it is no longer so easy to sell drugs, finish his studies and raise a child. At that moment he is offered the chance to turn his life around, and he knows he should take advantage of it. However when the blood of the King Lords runs through your veins, it is not so easy to just give up.

              #1 New York Times bestseller - Seven starred reviews - Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Honor Book For all the struggle in this book, Thomas rarely misses a step as a writer. Thomas continues to hold up that mirror with grace and confidence. We are lucky to have her, and lucky to kno...w a girl like Bri. --The New York Times Book Review Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Or at least win her first battle. As the daughter of an underground hip hop legend who died right before he hit big, Bri's got massive shoes to fill. But it's hard to get your come up when you're labeled a hoodlum at school, and your fridge at home is empty after your mom loses her job. So Bri pours her anger and frustration into her first song, which goes viral . . . for all the wrong reasons. Bri soon finds herself at the center of a controversy, portrayed by the media as more menace than MC. But with an eviction notice staring her family down, Bri doesn't just want to make it--she has to. Even if it means becoming the very thing the public has made her out to be. Insightful, unflinching, and full of heart, On the Come Up is an ode to hip hop from one of the most influential literary voices of a generation. It is the story of fighting for your dreams, even as the odds are stacked against you; and about how, especially for young black people, freedom of speech isn't always free. Don't miss Concrete Rose, Angie Thomas's powerful prequel to her phenomenal bestseller, The Hate U Give!

Morris Award Winner - National Book Award Longlist - Printz Honor Book - Coretta Scott King Honor Book - #1 New York Times Bestseller! Absolutely riveting! --Jason Reynolds Stunning. --John Green This story... is necessary. This story is important. --Kirkus (starred review) Heartbreakingly topical. --Publishers Weekly (starred review) A marvel of verisimilitude. --Booklist (starred review) A powerful, in-your-face novel. --Horn Book (starred review) Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil's name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr. But what Starr does--or does not--say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life. Want more of Garden Heights? Catch Maverick and Seven's story in Concrete Rose, Angie Thomas's powerful prequel to The Hate U Give.
