Angie Thomas, debut author of the bestselling young adult novel, The Hate U Give, is gearing up for her next release, On the Come Up. The hotly anticipated novel is about 16-year-old Bri, an aspiring rapper (it runs in her family, as her father was an underground rapper on the brink of major success until his death) whose passion for conquering the rap world intensifies once her remaining family struggles to avoid homelessness.

Thomas has teamed up with Balzer + Bray (HarperCollins) again for On the Come Up, which will be available June 5.

In addition to Thomas’s second book, fans can look forward to the film adaptation of The Hate U Give, which stars Amandla Stenberg (who also portrayed the protagonist in the bestselling YA novel-turned-film, Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon).
