The second novel from Angie Thomas, author of New York Times bestseller The Hate U Give, about an aspiring teen rapper and what happens when you get everything you thought you wanted.

Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Or at least get some streams on her mixtape. As the daughter of an underground rap legend who died right before he hit big, Bri’s got massive shoes to fill. But when her mom unexpectedly loses her job, food banks and shut-off notices become as much a part of her life as beats and rhymes.

With bills piling up and homelessness staring her family down, Bri no longer just wants to make it – she has to make it.

Angie Thomas is the author of the hugely critically acclaimed and bestselling The Hate U Give. She was born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi. A former teen rapper, she is the recipient of a Walter Dean Myers Grant, awarded by the We Need Diverse Books campaign. This is her second novel. You can find her on Twitter: @acthomasbooks or visit her website, angiethomas.com.


Impeccably plotted, with a multiple storylines woven to a pulse-pounding conclusion, this is an astoundingly affecting novel that shines a light on the struggles of young black women, and celebrates freedom of speech and making noise about who you are, as seen through unforgettable Bri, a 100% authentic character whom readers will root for, cry for, yell out loud for, and grin for joy with. * LoveReading4Kids * On The Come Up is that book; a must-read of the year. YA fiction at its very best, it speaks with a genuine voice. This book is real. * Fallen Star Stories * At only thirty years old, Angie Thomas has already achieved much and seems bound to go on to more successes. Her writing seems bound to grip many young readers of every colour; their parents could also well find themselves drawn into it too. * Read for Keeps *
