Title: On The Come Up
Author: Angie Thomas
On The Come Up is a book about a sixteen year-old, African-American girl named Bri who wants to become one of the greatest rappers of her time. Throughout the book she faces big problems about race and police brutality. Bri uses her words in rapping to deal with the violence around her.
I really enjoyed reading this book because of the writing style and interesting plot. I like how it is written in first person because the reader can really understand what Bri is thinking and feeling. Another thing I like about this book is that you can read what she raps, and I found her raps to be interesting because sometimes they had double-meanings. The author has great dialogue, it feels very realistic because it is identical to how teens today really talk. My favorite character is the main character, Bri because she has a fun personality and is a talented rapper.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes reading books about real-life stuff. It reminds me of another book by Angie Thomas, The Hate U Give.
