Performed by Dion Graham.
If there's one thing seventeen-year-old Maverick Carter knows, it's that a real man takes care of his family. As the son of a former gang legend, Mav does that the only way he knows how: dealing for the King Lords. With this money he can help his mom, who works two jobs while his dad's in prison. Life's not perfect, but with a fly girlfriend and a cousin who always has his back, Mav's got everything under control. Until he finds out he's a father. Suddenly he has a baby, Seven, who depends on him for everything. But it's not so easy to sling dope, finish school, and raise a child. So when he's offered the chance to go straight, he takes it. In a world where he's expected to amount to nothing, maybe Mav can prove he's different. With King Lord blood running through his veins, though, he can't just walk away.

Imagine being 17 years old, living in the poor, violence-stricken community known as Garden Heights. Now imagine trying to navigate the social awkwardness of being a teenager while trying to stay out of trouble and, more importantly, trying to stay alive. In this prequel to The Hate U Give, we learn what life is like for a young Maverick Carter. While Maverick manages to stay alive, he doesn't quite know how to stay out of trouble. This immensely captivating story reaches new heights in an audio presentation that captures every uncertain moment of Maverick's life. Dion Graham is a natural and convincing storyteller. Graham's solo narration showcases a keen ability to embody both the innocent and the often-troubled side of Maverick. Graham's voice also adapts well to fast-moving scenes, acquainting listeners to the edginess of street life as well as the unrelenting wisdom of a community that continues to grow amid adversity.
