The YA love letter to hip-hop??streaming on Paramount+ September 23, 2022! Starring Sanaa Lathan (in her directorial debut), Jamila C. Gray, Da'Vine Joy Randolph, Lil Yachty, Method Man, Mike Epps, GaTa (Davionte Ganter), Miles Gutierrez-Riley, Titus Makin Jr., and Michael Anthony Cooper Jr.

#1 New York Times bestseller · Seven starred reviews · Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Honor Book

This digital edition contains a letter from the author, deleted scenes, a picture of the author as a teen rapper, an annotated playlist, Angie's top 5 MCs, an annotated rap, illustrated quotes from the book, and an excerpt from Concrete Rose, Angie's return to Garden Heights.

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's got massive shoes to fill. But it's hard to get your come up when you'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't just want to make it??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't always free.

"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."??The New York Times Book Review

Plus don't miss Concrete Rose, Angie Thomas's powerful prequel to her phenomenal bestseller, The Hate U Give!<… (mer)

They'll never truly understand because they don't wanna understand someone like me (pg 282)."

Respectability politics aside, I really liked this story. It's refreshing to read about a black girl and even more so one that is an awesome MC/rapper but still a prideful, funny, and vulnerable little girl. Also, thank you for acknowledging that police brutality happens to black women too and the snapshot of the sexism in hip-hop.

Also, I like the subversion of the MAJOR SPOILER: childhood lover. I thought Curtis would turn out to be a butthole and use Bri for clout. That's the cliche way things usually end, so I'm glad it did not. He traded her timbs for Nikes like a Cinderella. AWW. I enjoyed that conversation they had after the 5-O booked Aunt Pooh. AND I called it! I knew Miles was Sonny's internet bf. It all just fit too perfectly. :D

I absolutely loved Bri's grandaddy. Her grandparents, shady grandmom and all, are a gem. Honestly, I loved all the people that were around Bri. I liked seeing a healthy brother-sister relationship because I get tired of seeing sibling at odds all the time. I liked Jayda a lot. I want to root for Jayda and her struggles, her strengths, and her love. I hadn't thought about the stigma of black people who have recovered from substance abuse. I honestly just never thought about it. I have seen my share of stories with characters starting drugs and doing them and trying to quit, but I cannot really think of one that explored the after effects when they got sober. Kudos. On the otherhand, Malik was on the weaker side. Did he ever come clean to Shana?

For nitpicks, I feel like there are too many Wakanda Forever references haha. Bri, Sonny, and Malik will throw that into a conversation whenever possible.
they allow.

Rant over. But this is good. This book made me feel things.

Anyway, I guess the takeaway from On the Come Up is to try to present yourself in the best light possible. Fair. But my above point still stands. I don't have to prove myself to anyone. Bri knew she wasn't being true to herself; she didn't like this false character she was playing/being misconstrued. It's easy to get roped into playing the part someone else or society wants you to play.

Overall, read this. The narrative is crisp and relatable with loveable, realistic characters. The rhymes are nice too. AND Bri likes Lauryn Hill too? Girrrrllll. "That thing, that thing, that thing"

Yoooo, that epilogue! THAT AIN'T NO STUDYING hahaha. ( )

Bri's story is authentic and relatable. The teen struggles of figuring out who you are and what you want are amplified by her family circumstances and by the societal pressures. Go Bri! ( )

Bri is navigating life as a black girl at an urban magnet high school. Her home life is precarious--mom is a former drug user who has just lost her job and her father, a semi-famous rapper, was killed when she was little. Bri wants to be a rapper like her father, and when she is harassed at school by white security guards, she records an angry rap which gains a lot of followers. But is this who she really is?
I think Angie Thomas has created an empathetic character in Bri--pulling for her all the time you see the forces of life pushing her down. ( )

Bri was a bit of a spoiled brat for about 90% of the book. I would have loved to see the story from Jay’s perspective instead.

Content: loads of language, drug dealing, mother was a former addict, violence

Thomas is the author of The Hate U Give, an excellent YA book about police violence. This book is set in the same neighborhood, the protagonist is Brianna, a young rapper. It's not as good as Thomas's other books, but I did enjoy reading about a female rapper, and Thomas really illustrates the issues.

Interestingly, Brianna comes off more negatively than the main characters in Thomas's other books; she's a bit of a brat. I think that's because Thomas (who is also a rapper) sees herself in the character and thus was harder on her.) ( )

"Who are you?" she [Jay/Mom] repeats. "Of the millions and billions of people in the world, you're the only person who can answer that. Not people online or at your school. I can't even answer that. I can say who I think you are." She cups my cheek. "And I think you're brilliant, talented, courageous, beautiful. You're my miracle. But you're the only one who can say who you are with authority. So, who are you?" (p. 397)
You see, I'm headstrong (and petty) like Grandma. I'm creative like Granddaddy. I speak my mind like Mom. I might be as strong as her, too. I care so much that it hurts. Like Trey. I'm like my dad in a lot of ways, even if I'm not him. And although Kayla isn't family (yet), maybe she's a glimpse at who I could be. If I'm nothing else, I'm them, and they're me. That more than enough. (p. 425)
