On the Come Up

review On the Come Up Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB Angie Thomas Õ 3 free download Sixteen year old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time Or at least make it out of her neighborhood one day As the daughter of an underground rap legend who died before he hit big Bri’s got big shoes to fill But now that her mom has unexpectedly lost her job food ban. You ll never silence me and you ll never kill my dreamJust recognize when you say brilliant that you re also saying BriFirst of all HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY and second of all THIS BOOK IS GONNA BE A FILM YOU GUYS What a birthday present am I rightSpoiler freeThis is the 2019 release I was most scared to read THUG was such a major ground breaking and emotional book for me that the stakes for Angie s second books were mile high Now I can assure you that there is no need to worry Angie will not disappoint This book is just as essential and spectacularI don t think I have ever read a book this black I can t think of a single white main or side character just now And I know this is going to bother people Just like they are bothered when there is than one gay character on a show White people have been the centre of YA and the majority of other literary genres for decades It is time that popular culture makes room for books that represent and celebrate all kinds of cultures as a whole This will not only help all kinds of teenagers feel represented but it will also help us understand each other it will create empathy respect and appreciation I m not black I didn t grow up in a poor part of town where drugs and gangs shaped society I have never been discriminated against because my heritage or skin colour led others to think less of me But this book brought me closer to not only understand the struggles of what a life like Bri s includes but also how important loyalty family friendship faith etc are for a teenager like herThat s not all though Angie addresses a lot of topics that deal with respecting other people s backgrounds and stories She does not pretend to know what is going on in a gay teenagers head but she still manages to tell his story with dignity and tact She outright acknowledges that a gay boy s story is not hers to tell because she has not made the same experiences as a presumably straight woman I would love to see of that in the literature community overall not just in YALet s talk about Bri while we re at it That girl is talented lemme tell you I love her family and friends but I often had a hard time connecting with Bri on an emotional level She likes to jump to conclusions and often acts without thinking about the conseuences Even when people tell her to watch out and lay low because whatever she might say or do will put her in a difficult position she still doesn t stop to think She keeps making that mistake over and over again and I uickly ran out of patience Then again she was hilarious and smart and often made me laugh out loudThe writing was great as always Reading Angie s books makes you feel things The lyrics to Bri s songs gave me goosebumps every single time The dialogues between the characters were ultimately funny So Much ShadeThere are also a few Easter eggs in there I am sure that I missed some of them and all I am going to say is that I love seeing authors referencing other authors and their books Or to see them being inspired by other author s storiesThe reason I m only giving this book 4 stars instead of 5 is because of as I have mentioned before the lack of a deeper emotional connection I seriously wept while reading THUG That book destroyed me On the Come Up did not have that effect on me But as I said do not let this keep you from reading the book It is just as compelling as Angie s debutI wonder whether we will get to see On the Come Up on the big screen I would love to actually hear Bri perform her songs They might become actual chart toppers who knows Thank you to Walker Books for providing me with an advance copy in return for an honest reviewFind of my books on Instagram
