you I will walk the straight and narrow. I will do what I have to do

Dialouge was on point, the text flowed and great characters. A smooth read and I found myself gasping and cheering outloud. Finished in one sitting - which was hard to do with a sleep over in progress - but I wanted to know what happened next. I'll be checking out his other books.

I would recommend the book "On The Come Up" to anyone that likes young adult fiction. This book shows that some people don't grow up with parent's and have such a good lifestyle growing up. this book explains that the decisions you make do affect you for the rest of your life.
