On the Come Up – Angie Thomas
Rating: 3 stars
Cliff Notes: Audiobook narrated by Bahni Turpin – who IS AMAZING
Full Summary: I really liked The Hate U Give and waited for On the Come Up for a few months through the library. The story is one that is important to hear, specifically how the system seems to work against those who are trying to get out of it. I got bogged down by the YA-ness of it. Maybe Angie Thomas will write the backstory of Aunt Poo.
Side note – As some of you know, when I listen to audiobooks, I listen at double speed. There are several sections of this book where Bri raps. I did crack up a few times listening to rapping double speed. Listener beware and all….
