A few weeks ago, me and Sarah went to an event at Manchester Central Library to see Angie Thomas talk about her latest release, On The Come Up and answer some questions about it. I finished the book just after the event and absolutely adored it. If I could give it more than 5 stars out of 5, I truly would. The event was fantastic and I was so excited to see Angie speak.
Simply put, this is one of the most powerful and thought provoking insight in to the way other people live i’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. I was in a little bit of a YA slump until i read The Hate U Give. It completely blew up in America and was fueled by the movie rights being bought. I went in to it thinking it was over-hyped, but it’s simply phenomenal.
