On the Come Up by Angie Thomas. 350 p. HarperCollins Publishers, June 5, 2018. 9780062498564.
Publisher synopsis: 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.
I am very eager to read Angie Thomas' sophomore effort.
