#1 New York Times bestseller · Seven starred reviews · Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Honor Book & #8220 For all the struggle in this book, Thomas rarely misses a step as a writer. Thomas continues to hold up that mirror with grace and confidence. We are lucky to have her, and lucky to know a girl like Bri.& #8221 & #8212 The New York Times Book Review Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Or at least win her first battle. As the daughter of an underground hip hop legend who died right before he hit big, Bri& #8217 s got massive shoes to fill. But it& #8217 s hard to get your come up when you& #8217 re labeled a hoodlum at school, and your fridge at home is empty after your mom loses her job. So Bri pours her anger and frustration into her first song, which goes viral . . . for all the wrong reasons. Bri soon finds herself at the center of a controversy, portrayed by the media as more menace than MC. But with an eviction notice staring her family down, Bri doesn& #8217 t just want to make it& #8212 she has to.  Even if it means becoming the very thing the public has made her out to be.    Insightful, unflinching, and full of heart, On the Come Up  is an ode to hip hop from one of the most influential literary voices of a generation. It is the story of fighting for your dreams, even as the odds are stacked against you and about how, especially for young black people, freedom of speech isn& #8217 t always free. Don't miss Concrete Rose, Angie Thomas's powerful prequel to her phenomenal bestseller, The Hate U Give!
