Audiobook Of The Month | On The Come Up

 

y648 (3)

This month brings the newest book from best-selling author Angie Thomas to the top of my “need to read list.” Following the incredible continued success of her debut The Hate U Give, I’ve been impatiently waiting for whatever she would come out with next.

On The Come Up is an set within the same town of Garden Height as The Hate U Give and while there are many nods to it, this story is its own entity. The reader is introduced to Bri: a teenage girl who is trying to break onto the rap scene. Given all the expectations already placed on her because of her race, music is the one aspect of her life that Bri feels she can fully control.

Angie Thomas just has an incredible way of bringing characters to life on the page and I feel that this reading experience is only enhanced by the brilliant narration from Bahni Turpin – it’s like I’m listening to Bri directly tell her story.

At the time of writing this post I am 53% through.
