I hope you all managed to enjoy some time with your family and friends during the Easter break. It was lovely to welcome back all our pupils and students on Monday, for what I hope will be a happy, healthy and successful summer term. We have been incredibly proud of how well the majority of our pupils and students have returned to school life, and, once again, embraced all of the COVID-19 measures in place throughout the school.
“A hard-hitting return to Garden Heights with the story of Maverick Carter, Starr’s father, set seventeen years before the events of the award-winning The Hate U Give. With his King Lord dad in prison and his mom working two jobs, seventeen-year-old Maverick Carter helps the only way he knows how: slinging drugs.
Life’s not perfect, but he’s got everything under control.
Until he finds out he’s a father… Suddenly it’s not so easy to deal drugs and finish school with a baby dependent on him for everything.
So when he’s offered the chance to go straight, he takes it.
But when King Lord blood runs through your veins, you don’t get to just walk away.”
A powerful voice, this story will have you gripped!
