From the visionary Angie Thomas comes a story about hip-hop, prejudice, and fighting for your dreams. Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. It's hard to get your come up, though, when you're labeled "trouble" at school and your fridge at home is empty after your mom loses her job. But Bri's success is all that stands between her family and homelessness, so she doesn't just want to make it - she has to. Even if it means becoming exactly what the public expects her to be.
