A hardcover box set of #1 New York Times bestseller The Hate U Give, and the much-anticipated On the Come Up, by Angie Thomas.
Ordinary girls in extraordinary circumstances, addressing issues of racism, poverty, police brutality, and what it’s like to be young and black in America when freedom of speech isn’t always free.
In The Hate U Give, Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.
On the Come Up is Angie Thomas’s homage to hip hop. 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, and with bills piling up and homelessness staring her family down, Bri no longer just wants to make it—she has to make it.
