“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.”
On The Come Up, was another one of those great gripping books. Honestly I’ve read so many brilliant books recently. It’s full of those real life struggles, not just the dramatic teenage ones, REAL ONES. Like, drugs, guns, and racism. OTCU, is unlike any other YA book I’ve read, (and listened too as I also have the audio book now) I’ve not read anything else by Angie Thomas before, but she is officially on my book heroine list now!
