Concrete Rose is the prequel to the New York Times bestseller The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas. It was released on January 12, 2021, and in this small amount of time, it has over 4.5 stars on most platforms! It follows 17-year-old Maverick Carter as he tries to figure out his life as a new father and as he deals with the grief from a passed loved one. He tries to make a life that is best for his family but will also keep him safe.  If you loved The Hate You Give, you will love Concrete Rose. It pieces together parts of The Hate You Give and brings way more detail to it. It is one of the best books I have ever read.
