Waterstones Children's Book Prize-winning author New York Times #1 bestselling author The highly anticipated second novel from Angie Thomas returns to the world of Garden Heights for 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.

Thomas, a former rapper herself, packs so much into these 448 pages, but they fly along with the agility of one of Bris freestyles. * The Times, Childrens 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 Bris 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 todays 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 *
