Angie Thomas, the renowned author of The Hate You Give, is back with her brand new novel, On the Come Up. Readers who loved Thomas’ first novel will love her new one, which carries references to The Hate You Give woven into the story. Bri’s message is not only communicated through prose, but also through pieces of her rapping dispersed throughout the book. Thomas has definitely not lost her touch.
