This is the highly anticipated second novel by Angie Thomas, the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling, award-winning The Hate U Give. Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Or at least win her first battle. As the daughter of an underground hip hop legend who died right before he hit big, Bri's got massive shoes to fill. But it's hard to get your come up when you're labeled a hoodlum at school, and your fridge at home is empty after your mom loses her job. So Bri pours her anger and frustration into her first song, which goes viral...for all the wrong reasons. Bri soon finds herself at the center of a controversy, portrayed by the media as more menace than MC. But with an eviction notice staring her family down, Bri doesn't just want to make it--she has to. Even if it means becoming the very thing the public has made her out to be.   Insightful, unflinching, and full of heart, On the Come Up is an ode to hip hop from one of the most influential literary voices of a generation. It is the story of fighting for your dreams, even as the odds are stacked against you; and about how, especially for young black people, freedom of speech isn't always free.… (més)

4.5 stars. I really enjoyed this second book by Angie Thomas. While it refers to her first book, The Hate U Give, this book tells the story of a different character, Bri, who is a talented up and coming rapper. I had to return it to the library before reviewing, but her mom has some great advice and insight near the end of the book. I really want to know who the text was from! Such a tease! Keep writing Ms. Thomas! ( )

Really liked this book. Took me a while to finish it, but once I dedicated time every day to chip away at it, I looked forward to my time with the characters. ( )

This isn't as well-crafted as THUG and I have a theory that this book was written before Ms. Thomas' first published novel. If anyone can confirm or deny this theory, please let me know. ( )

So, here comes the review from the nearing-60, hip-hop/rap hating Canadian white guy.

I absolutely loved this book. Was it as important a book as [b:The Hate U Give|32075671|The Hate U Give|Angie Thomas|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1476284759l/32075671._SY75_.jpg|49638190]? I'm not the guy with the right outlook to decide that. I will say it took me a while to sit down with this one, simply because I don't care about 16-year-old aspiring rappers.

But a couple of things to point out here...the first is, Thomas doesn't give a shit about what you do and do not care about, she's going to sit your ass down and she's gonna make you care. Second, that whole 16-year-old aspiring rapper bit? That's just the framework she carefully uses to once again get a very powerful message across.

There's some very well-drawn characters here. Rich and poor. Black and white. Straight and gay. Young and old. Meek and outspoken. Peaceful and violent. Thomas seems to love bringing all these opposites together and seeing what happens when one gets thrown against another.

And, in the end, we're given a heartbreaking view into the lives of those that, for the most part, the world doesn't give much of a shit about. Especially by the man leading their government. But Thomas imbues them with dignity.

And that's one of the big things this book is about: the quiet heroism of maintaining your dignity while the world just keeps handing you shit sandwich after shit sandwich.

But it's also about finding your voice (much as The Hate U Give was, as well) and weaponizing it. Finding the exact spot to use it to first crack, then split apart those people and circumstances that are designed to hold you to that place the world thinks you should be.

It's about using all of that, your dignity, your perseverance, and your voice, to overcome all that would hold you down.

And, along the way, Thomas also entertains you with a solid story. I'm in awe of Angie Thomas. ( )

"Who are you?" she [Jay/Mom] repeats. "Of the millions and billions of people in the world, you're the only person who can answer that. Not people online or at your school. I can't even answer that. I can say who I think you are." She cups my cheek. "And I think you're brilliant, talented, courageous, beautiful. You're my miracle. But you're the only one who can say who you are with authority. So, who are you?" (p. 397)
You see, I'm headstrong (and petty) like Grandma. I'm creative like Granddaddy. I speak my mind like Mom. I might be as strong as her, too. I care so much that it hurts. Like Trey. I'm like my dad in a lot of ways, even if I'm not him. And although Kayla isn't family (yet), maybe she's a glimpse at who I could be. If I'm nothing else, I'm them, and they're me. That more than enough. (p. 425)
