Review: On The Come Up

//Goodreads             

On the come up is my second book i’ve read from the author Angie Thomas, and let me just tell you now – WOW. Even though that «gangsta» talk and sometimes how the characters acted in a way, was somewhat wierd to me, did it not stop me from liking it. I loved it from page to page, Bri or Brianna is fierce, smart-mouthed and badass, but also emotional, insecure and sweet… i just liked her so much, and could relate to what she thought and wanted. This book made me laugh, cry and slightly rage – i connected with Bri the whole time and this was so badass! I loved the rapping she did and could hear how she would have rapped in my head. The only bad thing i has to say is? I’m seriously sad because it’s over! 😦 I want more!

I make a small list, just because i felt for it:
Sonny – I’m so happy he got his, happy ending? ish? at least he dared to chase it c:
Malik – Was tbh, mad at him ALOT. But I understood what and why.
Curtis – He’s such an adorable dork and he and Bri fits so perf ❤
Trey – Such a awesome big brother 🙂
Jay – Their mom is also fierce, and wants to take care of everything herself, even though it’s hard. She loves them, alot.
Aunt Pooh – She has to decide who she wants to be, even though it’s hard.

  1. I’m glad you enjoyed it! ☺️ I haven’t read it but I’m guessing the “gansta talk” is AAVE, an actual language created and used by Black people here in the U.S.
