Product description

By the author of The Hate U Give! MC or menace? Rap queen or problem teen? A heartfelt ode to hip-hop with a stark message: free speech isn’t free. It always costs you. Bri dreams of being a great rapper. But as the daughter of a street hip hop legend who died right before he hit big, she’s got massive shoes to fill. And things are going wrong at school. And the fridge is empty. And an eviction notice just hit the doormat. She’s had enough. So she pours out her rage in a song, which goes viral for all the wrong reasons. Uh-oh: she’s kicked up a storm! People are shocked. They love her. They hate her. They’ve got her all wrong. But to save her family, Bri has to play up to her image – whether she likes it or not.

  • Another electrifying book by YA sensation Angie Thomas
  • A taut, raw, powerful tale with an unforgettable heroine
  • Angie won the Waterstones Prize for The Hate U Give
  • She is a former teen rapper with a truly authentic voice

*Please note this book contains mature content and language more suitable for older readers.
