On The Come Up
By Angie Thomas

PUBLISHED 07/02/2019 BY WALKER BOOKS
GOODREADS

Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Or at least make it out of her neighborhood one day. As the daughter of an underground rap legend who died before he hit big, Bri’s got big shoes to fill. But now that her mom has unexpectedly lost her job, food banks and shutoff notices are as much a part of Bri’s 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.

On the Come Up is Angie Thomas’s homage to hip-hop, the art that sparked her passion for storytelling and continues to inspire her to this day. It is the story of fighting for your dreams, even as the odds are stacked against you; of the struggle to become who you are and not who everyone expects you to be; and of the desperate realities of poor and working-class black families.

  1. I started reading this in the bookstore yesterday immediately when I saw it displayed. I was actually in the bookstore killing time before a meeting but it turned into an impulse buy of OTCU. I can’t wait to read it!
