Year 15, Book 20

20. On the Come Up by Angie Thomas

Although it doesn’t contain any of the same characters this book is set in the same world as Thomas’s previous book, The Hate You Give, shortly after the riots that took place in that book. Bri is a teenage girl who is trying to follow her dream to be a rapper while dealing with her mother losing her job and getting harassed at school by the security guards. I didn’t care for this book as much as The Hate You Give. Also having read that book this one seemed a little bit repetitive to some degree. I suspect that most people who liked The Hate You Give will like this book too though. I give it a 6 out of 10.
