Angie Thomas Announces Third Novel, “Concrete Rose”


Angie Thomas has announced on Twitter revealed the title of her upcoming third novel, Concrete Rose, a novel set 17 years before her bestselling hit, The Hate U Give:


The novel, which will be published by HarperCollins on January 21, 2021, centers on Maverick Carter, Starr’s father. It will track Maverick’s beginnings as he begins fatherhood with Starr’s older brother Seven, when he is only 17 years old. Concrete Rose will focus on what it means to be a young black man-and father-in America. Like her debut novel, Thomas believes that this book will be “banned”.

I was born and raised in New York. I still live in New York but kind of sick of the city and one day I wish to move to the UK.I have a Masters degree in Library Science and I currently work in a special collections library. I loved books ever since I was a little girl. Through the hard times in my life, my love for books has always gotten me through. Just entering another world different from my own intrigues me. As long as I am entering in another universe, I like to create my own as well. I love to write and hopefully I will be able to complete a novel.
