A prequel that is nice to have but ultimately doesn't feel necessary since it was alluded to fairly well in the first book. The backstory of Starr Carter's dad as a teen father, gang member, and drug dealer in the 1990s will be familiar territory for anyone who watched Boyz N the Hood, Juice, South Central, and Poetic Justice back in the day.

The material just doesn't seem as timely and urgent as The Hate U Give though it is a touching enough portrait of redemption through fatherhood. ( )

In this prequel to The Hate U Give, Thomas gives us the young Maverick Carter, a 17-year-old gang member struggling to find his path to manhood.

I really liked her debut novel, but I have a problem with “prequels / sequels.” That’s my issue and I recognize it may be unfair, but Thomas’s sophomore effort had that hill to climb for me. And she did it marvelously well!

I can really see how this young man, hardly out of childhood, is being influenced – by his peers, by his parents, by other adults in his neighborhood and school, and by the expectations of society. The pressure on him to “be a man” is intense, and the conflicting ways in which this is evidenced or proved to others is at the core of Maverick’s difficulties.

On the one hand he honors the respect shown his father (who is incarcerated for crimes committed) by other gang members and the reputation Maverick feels he needs to live up to as “little Don.” On the other hand, are the messages he’s getting from his mother and neighbor Mr Wyatt about being responsible, and thinking for himself rather than following the crowd. On the one hand is the sense of belonging and camaraderie he feels with his fellow gang members, on the other is the love he feels for his girlfriend Lisa, and the obvious disdain shown him by her brother and parents because of his gang affiliation. I particularly liked the conversations he had with Mr Wyatt, owner of the local grocery, who gives Maverick a part-time job and some sound advice on setting goals and working to achieve them.

Maverick’s only seventeen, and for all his bravado and pronouncements about “being a man” he is not yet an adult. Teenagers make mistakes – sometimes serious mistakes – often based on the emotion of an instant rather than a coherent plan. Some poor decisions threaten to completely derail this young man’s path to adulthood. Having read the debut novel, I know he’ll survive, and yet some of the scenes had me so afraid for Maverick, my heart was in my throat and tears flowed freely.

Thomas writes about a realistic urban environment for many families, with brutal honesty and empathy. She does not shy away from the serious social issues facing these families, nor does she offer platitudes or pat answers on how to address these issues.

Dion Graham does a marvelous job performing the audiobook. He really brings these characters to life and his changes in vocal style, and inflection make it easy to understand who is speaking. ( )

Vi återvänder till Garden Heights i prequelen till Angie Thomas fantastiska bok "The Hate U Give". Prequels kan vara vanskliga att ta sig an, men jag har ett gott förhållande till detta grepp, och var inte speciellt nervös för att läsa boken om Maverick och Lisa - Starrs föräldrar - då Angie Thomas är en fantastisk författare. Och jag är inte besviken - boken flödar fram med ett makalöst språk, och det tog inte lång tid förrän jag var helt uppslukad av historien. Maverick och Lisa växer ut till mer än bara karaktärer. Jag kommer så nära deras bekymmer, glädjeämnen, familjer och vänner att jag baxnar. "Concrete Rose" hamrar in faktumet att Thomas är en av de mest intressanta författarna i USA just nu. Gillade ni "The Hate U give" och "On the come up" så ska ni kasta er över den här boken. /Martin, ungdomsbibliotekarie ( )

Concrete Rose is a prequel to The Hate U Give. I absolutely loved The Hate U Give so was enthusiastic to read Maverick's backstory. It's not quite at that level, but I adored Starr and she isn't born in this novel. It fills in a lot of blanks and I enjoyed seeing younger versions of Maverick, Lisa, King, Iesha and Seven. It also shows us Maverick first working in Mr. Wyatt's grocery store.
I'd recommend this for fans of THUG. ( )

Seventeen-year-old Maverick Carter is a "little homie" in the King Lords, selling drugs on the side to help tide things over at home. But his heart isn't in it – and when he hears he's about to become a father, he's determined to extricate himself from the dangerous gang life that has claimed so many of his family and friends. Walking away, however, is not so easy. Thomas's prequel to the award-winning The Hate U Give investigates the pride and pain of being a black boy on the brink of manhood with inimitable humour, clarity and pathos.
