Title: On the come up
Author: Angie Thomas
Genre: YA contemporary
Release date: February 5th 2019
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.
Why I’m excited:
I mean don’t we all want to know what Angie Thomas will write after The Hate U Give ??!
Personally I am so curious what kind of strong story she will write this time! Also I’m really liking the cover!
Also I just want to complain about the fact that the movie of The Hate U Give is still not released here..
Come talk to me!
What is a book you’re looking forward to?
