On the Come Up

Author(s): Angie Thomas

Upcoming YA

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 before he hit big time, Bri's got massive shoes to fill. But when her mom loses her job, food banks and shut-off notices become as much a part of her life as beats and rhymes. With homelessness staring her family down, Bri no longer just wants to make it. She has to make it. Brilliant, insightful, full of heart, this is another modern classic from one of the most influential literary voices of a generation.
