    Urbandictionary.com shows the definition for on the come up as ?something that's not quite happening yet, but on the verge of blowing up or making some serious noise.? This phrase definitely applies to Angie Thomas' newest heroine Bri in her goal of becoming a rapper... and in ...

    I started reading On the Come Up on 3/16/2019 and finished it on 3/28/2019 at 12:30am. This book is an excellent read! I love that it takes place in the same neighborhood as the author?s first book and the bits and pieces of the first book were mentioned on here. I can?t recall if ...

    Aunt Pooh said I only get one chance to let everybody and their momma know who I am. So I take it. How do you follow a book like The Hate U Give? Reading THUG, I got the impression that I was experiencing something momentous. It was breathtaking. Important. I was witnessing a ...

    I?m going to be bold about this and say that I loved this more than THUG. Angie Thomas had a hard act to follow, but this was spot on in every possible way. ...

    DISCLAIMER I get that some people might not see some of my words with good eyes, but these are the things that this book made me think about. So please, respect my opinion. It's against no one, but if you have a different opinion than mine, or you totally disagree with my thoughts, fe...

    So good! I had Bri's songs stuck in my head the whole time I was reading this. Loved how this unpacks the "angry Black woman" stereotype through Bri's school experience and music. Audiobook review: Narration is great. It's the same voice actor who did Children of Blood and Bone for...

    3.5 stars! Angie Thomas' debut novel 'The Hate You Give' blew me away. I hate to compare it to this, because they are totally different stories, but I couldn't help myself. For me, this was good, but not near as good as THUG. Angie Thomas is an amazing writer and there was lots...

    Well we all knew the Queen of YA would gift us with another incredible story...so brb, just feeling so many things about this one. I also really love Angie Thomas' style, her voice, and her passion and love that you can absolutely feel in every single page of the book. This one is abou...

    Angie Thomas didn't just live up to the expectations I had after reading and loving The Hate U Give, she went to an entirely new level with On The Come Up. As a school librarian and reviewer of a great deal of young adult literature, I can tend to feel a bit of ?been there, read that...

    Oh my, oh my, oh my. This was INTENSE. I have no doubt a movie will be produced. Otherwise, BIG MISTAKE because this is something the world needs and I just really want to see a teen movie with a rap battle + romance + family drama + diverse characters + fierce social involvement. Beca...

    Angie Thomas can do no wrong. That much has been made obvious in this book. I loved Bri and her personality and watching her overcome her struggles, and just the whole book in general. I don't know how Angie Thomas can put so much personality into her characters. Even the sid...

    While I didn't enjoy the plot of this one quite as much as I enjoyed the plot of the Hate U Give, this book was still soOoOoOoOo GOOD. Angie Thomas' writing perfectly fits the YA genre and we are truly blessed to be living in the same lifetime as her. SO DAMN GOOD. TW: racism, drug ...

    Damn, I loved this book! The Hate U Give was one of my favorite reads in 2017 and it looks like On the Come Up is going to make my 2019 list. Angie Thomas absolutely nails "voice" and "characterization " in her storytelling and in 16 year old Brianna, an aspiring rapper, she creates ...

    This was really good! I wasn't as big of a fan of this book as I was of The Hate U Give, but this book contains the same amazing writing and calling people out on their white privilege. The main character Bri lives in the same neighborhood as Starr from The Hate U Give (which is pretty...

    [4.5?] This book was pretty fuckin phenomenal. I wasn't sure how THUG could be topped, but Angie Thomas did that! I fell in love with this story, with Brianna, her friends and family and her love for music. All those aspects were pretty much nailed and I couldn't get enough once...

    It?s Angie Thomas? world and she?s just allowing us to live in it. You know when you finish reading a book and there's a moment that feels so remarkable it carves out a space in time and whirls there while the world rushes on around it? In that gap where your real storyline se...

    Going to keep this review short because everyone and their rap-loving aunt is going to read and review this book. And, cutting right to the chase, because everyone wants to know how On the Come Up measures up to The Hate U Give, so let me be straight: They're different books. THUG ...

    So I heard that this book is set in Garden Heights, the same place as THUG. WHY WAS I NOT AWARE OF THIS?? WILL THERE BE THE HATE U GIVE CAMEOS? AND I heard that this book is best in audio because the narrator's rapping is on point ? dear lord I need to read this soon. ____...
