Review

"Thomas, a former rapper herself, packs so much into these 448 pages, but they fly along with the agility of one of Bri's freestyles." * The Times, Children's Book of the Week * "There is no second-book syndrome here. Unflinching, honest and brimming with humanity, Thomas writes with confidence and conviction about kids seldom seen in literature... Bri's frustrated, angry lyrics are pure magic." * The Observer * "The phrase "voice of a generation" is surely one of the most overused in popular culture. Angie Thomas, however, is one of the rare authors for whom it rings true... Her second, On the Come Up, proves that success was no fluke." * i newspaper * "Best for: Making you laugh, cry and cheer out loud. . . an acute dissection of the way black girls are objectified and stereotyped by today's society." * i newspaper * "When THUG came out, Thomas was branded "the voice of a generation"; On the Come Up proves that those accolades were not premature. Clever, thoughtful and thoroughly addictive, it deserves to be one of the biggest hits of the year." * i newspaper *
