Product description

Rap queen or problem teen? We have selected On the Come Up as our Teen Book of the Month for May – the second razor-sharp novel by the author of Amnesty Carnegie Medal winner and Waterstones Children’s Book Prize winner The Hate U Give. A perfect choice for all ages from 13+ to adult – hugely relevant contemporary fiction that confronts today’s big issues and powerfully engages readers in their world. Angie Thomas’s new book is an ode to hip-hop with a stark message about the price of free speech. It explores many important topics including racism, housing insecurity, consumerism and poverty, as well as the problems of fame and maintaining a public image. The pressures of being a black teenager in modern America are sharply observed in the frank, urgent voice which is fast making this author (herself a former teen rapper) a standout YA star.

*Please note this book contains mature content and language more suitable for older readers.

Also available in class packs of six and 30 copies.
