The highly anticipated second novel from one of the literary voices of a generation. Waterstones Children's Book Prize-winning author New York Times #1 bestselling author The award-winning author of The Hate U Give returns with a powerful story about hip hop, freedom of speech and fighting for your dreams, even as the odds are stacked against you. Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. As the daughter of an underground hip hop legend who died right before he hit big, Bri's got massive shoes to fill. But when her first song goes viral for all the wrong reasons, Bri finds herself at the centre of controversy and portrayed by the media as more menace than MC. And with an eviction notice staring her family down, Bri no longer just wants to make it - she has to. Even if it means becoming the very thing the public has made her out to be. Inspired by Angie's mom losing her job when Angie was a teenager, On the Come Up sheds light on child poverty in the US. Angie says: "Kids like Bri, who are facing homelessness and poverty, become statistics and numbers. Their stories are never told... I want to give those kids more books to see themselves in." The Hate U Give has been on the New York Times bestseller list since publication. It was also #1 on Amazon UK, and it has received numerous accolades, including winning the Waterstones Children's Book Prize and the British Book Awards Children's Book of the Year. It is shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal. It was named a New York Times Editors' Choice and a Teen Vogue Book of the Year. It was also voted one of Time Magazine's books of the year. The movie adaptation releases in Australia in January, 2019.

I found it to be an engrossing story and I came away with a new appreciation of the complexity of improvised rap poetry. * ReadPlus * The relationships between all these characters (notably Aunt Pooh and Bri, and Trey and Bri) are a joy to read, not because they are always perfect, but because they feel real * A Cosy Reader * It is legitimately illuminating. Like this story, which entreats teens to fight for their dreams and keep looking skyward. Punchy, inelegant, real, this story is dope. (Read it for yourself to understand why). * Kids Book Review * The rap lyrics featured provide insight into Bri's thoughts and feelings and give the writing style an irrepressible energy, rhythm and flow. It's a joy to read. * WH Smith * Read this book if you enjoy gripping, real YA. It's a story that needs to be heard, from a part of America that is ignored and disempowered on a daily basis. * Booksellers NZ *
