My full book review is now up on Word Revel.

_________

January 14, 2019

Initial thoughts: Excuse me while I collect myself. This book is so powerfully written, and demonstrates the hardships Bri has to deal with due to racism and poverty. On the Come Up challenges stereotypes and makes readers stop and think about the world we live in. I have too many and too few words to explain the impact this book had on me as reader. I'll take a day or two to process more before typing up a full review on my blog.

As with The Hate U Give, I agree with all who say that On the Come Up needs to be on everyone's radar.

Note: I received an advanced reading copy from a local distributor in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
