I have a passion for box book sets, where I can sit and read a whole collection one after the other. Although the author Angie Thomas is a former teen rapper On The Come Up grabbed my attention, with a young sixteen year old Bri who wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time, and why not want that? Most young teenagers have some sort of an idea what they want to do with their lives and to me there's nothing wrong anyone at any age wanting to famous in some kind of way. The story is quit...
This special boxed set of two Angie Thomas books is a great treat for anyone who doesn’t already own these two books. ‘The Hate U Give’ and ‘On the Come Up’ the first two books by Angie Thomas, are included here with their original UK covers. The books come in an outer sleeve-type box that’s made of card and fits nicely together and look good on any shelf.I won’t go into too much detail about the books but if you’ve read even one of the books you’ll know that they are a powerful read and are def...
The Hate You Give- Raw, Real, and Relevant. The best thing about this book is that the characters are not perfect by any means and most realize their mistakes.The book does have minor flaws pertaining to certain character conversations that I felt could have been explained a bit better. However, this book still deserves between 4.5-5 stars as it is a story that not only needs to be told, but also needs to be understood.On The Come Up-Emotional, intense, and spectacular in every way imaginable.
BravoAngie Thomas does it again! With captivating prose and freestyle, she penned a heart-warming/heart-breaking (read full spectrum of emotions will be experienced) YA read, that readers of all ages can enjoy.
worth it also the pack is cheaper than buying individually
Very good about police brutality against black people
Official Rating:5/5 stars 🌟
Good but not fantastic like _The Hate U Give_. It felt like the church scenes and some of the family scenes were "real" but the music scenes were thinner and rang less true.
Made this white woman squirm. A learning experience
I just read this combination for a YA Book Club and I honestly can not sing the praises of Angie Thomas enough. She is an outstanding writer.
