Shining sophomore story…
Return to Garden Heights from “The Hate U Give” with Angie Thomas’ lauded sophomore story. Bri is working to make it big as a rapper, despite all the setbacks in her path, including racial stereotypes and poverty. The raw power of rap takes center stage in this star of a novel.

Description

This is the highly anticipated second novel by Angie Thomas, the author of the number-one New York Times best-selling, award-winning The Hate U Give.

Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Or at least get some streams on her mixtape.

As the daughter of an underground rap legend who died right before he hit big, Bri's got massive shoes to fill. But when her mom unexpectedly loses her job, food banks and shut-off notices become as much a part of Bri's life as beats and rhymes.

With bills piling up and homelessness staring her family down, Bri no longer just wants to make it — she has to make it.
