The second novel from the bestselling and award-winning author Angie Thomas. Waterstones Book of the Year prize-winning author New York Times #1 bestselling author The highly anticipated second novel from Angie Thomas, the internationally bestselling and multi-award-winning author of The Hate U Give. Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. 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 and homelessness is staring her family down, Bri no longer just wants to make it - she has to make it. 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." On the Come Up also draws on Angie's experiences as a teen rapper. She says, "It takes us right back to Garden Heights post Khalil. Buildings are burned, and a struggling community is left in the ashes. Hip hop was birthed from similar conditions in the Bronx ... [when] young people used their creativity to make themselves heard and so created one of the most influential cultures of modern history." 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 of the Year Award. It is shortlisted for the Nibbies' Children's Book of the Year and 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. It is soon to be a major motion picture.
