Product description

Review

★ "This follow-up to Thomas' landmark The Hate U Give, set in the same fictional city after the events of that book, demonstrates again Thomas' gift for crackling dialogue, complex characterization, and impactful emotion. Readers already lining up for this title won't be disappointed."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)

★ "On the Come Up truly shines in its exploration of Bri's resilience, determination, and pursuit of her dreams. In this splendid novel, showing many facets of the black identity and the black experience, Thomas gives readers another dynamic protagonist to root for."--ALA Booklist (starred review)

★ "This honest and unflinching story of toil, tears, and triumph is a musical love letter that proves literary lightning does indeed strike twice. The rawness of Bri's narrative demonstrates Thomas' undeniable storytelling prowess. A joyous experience awaits. Read it. Learn it. Love it."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

★ "While acknowledging that society is quick to slap labels onto black teens, the author allows her heroine to stumble and fall before finding her footing and her voice. Thomas once again fearlessly speaks truth to power; a compelling coming-of-age story for all teens."--School Library Journal (starred review)

★ "With sharp, even piercing, characterization, this indelible and intricate story of a young girl who is brilliant and sometimes reckless, who is deeply loved and rightfully angry at a world that reduces her to less than her big dreams call her to be, provides many pathways for readers."--Horn Book (starred review)

"This book beckons young readers and music lovers alike with an homage to the forefathers of hip-hop that also assures the feminine voice is never dismissed from the cypher."--Washington Post

"On the Come Up is earnest and warm-hearted, a careful examination of social issues that's built around an immensely endearing main character. It's likely to assure Thomas's continued and well-deserved dominance on the best-seller lists."--Vox

"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."--New York Times Book Review

"On the Come Up offers a complicated, imperfect heroine who lives and breathes her truth on every page."--Entertainment Weekly

"Bri's story is utterly compelling from first to last."--USA Today
