Our Favorite 'On The Come Up' Fan Reactions

It’s officially been a month since On the Come Up‘s release, and so far, Queen Angie Thomas has been killing the game, with Bri and Starr holding it down at #1 and #2 on the New York Times bestseller list. The Hate U Give also just celebrated a full TWO YEARS on the list, and there’s clearly no stopping Angie’s come up. Bri would be proud. We sure are!

Last week, Angie appeared on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah to talk On the Come Up, The Hate U Giveand the power of telling uncomfortable stories. If you missed it, you can watch the full interview here—and keep an ear out for one of Angie’s most epic, compelling quotes:


“My job as a writer is to write the stories that make adults uncomfortable—because that’s what the kids need.”
