Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas – author of The Hate U Give – returns to Garden Heights with the story of Maverick Carter, Starr’s father, and is set seventeen years before the events of the wildly popular and award-winning book.
"Concrete Rose is a book of our time, and although a prequel to The Hate U Give, it is a worthy successor that plays all the right notes when it comes to storytelling and imitating real life. A work of fiction beautifully interwoven in reality, this book will continue to speak for generations to come. A must read for the young and adults." - Mathew, Dymocks Waurn Ponds
