  • On the Come Up (Paperback)

    #1 New York Times bestseller · Seven starred reviews · Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Honor Book


    “For all the struggle in this book, Thomas rarely misses a step as a writer. Thomas continues to hold up that mirror with grace and confidence. We are lucky to have her, and lucky to know a girl like Bri.”—The New York Times Book Review


    This digital edition contains a letter from the author, deleted scenes, a picture of the author as a teen rapper, an annotated playlist, Angie’s top 5 MCs, an annotated rap, illustrated quotes from the book, and an excerpt from Concrete Rose, Angie's return to Garden Heights.


    Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Or at least win her first battle. As the daughter of an underground hip hop legend who died right before he hit big, Bri’s got massive shoes to fill.


    But it’s hard to get your come up when you’re labeled a hoodlum at school, and your fridge at home is empty after your mom loses her job. So Bri pours her anger and frustration into her first song, which goes viral . . . for all the wrong reasons.


    Bri soon finds herself at the center of a controversy, portrayed by the media as more menace than MC. But with an eviction notice staring her family down, Bri doesn’t just want to make it—she has to. Even if it means becoming the very thing the public has made her out to be.  


    Insightful, unflinching, and full of heart, On the Come Up is an ode to hip hop from one of the most influential literary voices of a generation. It is the story of fighting for your dreams, even as the odds are stacked against you; and about how, especially for young black people, freedom of speech isn’t always free.


    Don't miss Concrete Rose, Angie Thomas's powerful prequel to her phenomenal bestseller, The Hate U Give!

  • Shazam: A New Beginning 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition
    1987’s classic origin story for the World’s Mightiest Mortal is back in SHAZAM: A NEW BEGINNING 30TH ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION!

     
    He was one of the greatest heroes of comics’ Golden Age—a square-jawed colossus with a child’s optimistic spirit. Then a great crisis came that destroyed his world and erased his adventures from history. 
     
    But even during the grim and gritty era that followed, this force of pure goodness continued to shine through the gloom like the bolt of lightning that strikes whenever young Billy Batson says the magic word…
     
    SHAZAM!
     
    Then, in 1987, the celebrated saga of the orphaned boy with godlike powers began anew. Under an all-new creative team, DC’s Captain Marvel was reimagined as a 15-year-old teenager—one who is fated to grow up much faster than he’d hoped. 
     
    Arrayed against him are some of the most menacing villains the world has ever seen: Dr. Sivana, a scientific genius as evil as he is intelligent; Captain Nazi, an Aryan übermensch bent on building a new American reich; and Black Adam, a 5,000-year-old tyrant with the same powers as Captain Marvel and the cold-hearted ambition to rule the world!
     
    SHAZAM!: THE NEW BEGINNING 30TH ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION presents the complete Shazam! stories from legendary comics author Roy Thomas, his co-writer and wife Dann Thomas and acclaimed artists Tom Mandrake, Rick Stasi and Rick Magyar.

  • The Hate U Give (The Hate U Give #1)

    Eight Starred Reviews! #1 New York Times Bestseller!


    "Absolutely riveting!" —Jason Reynolds


    "Stunning." —John Green


    "This story is necessary. This story is important." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)


    "Heartbreakingly topical." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)


    "A marvel of verisimilitude." —Booklist (starred review)


    "A powerful, in-your-face novel." —The Horn Book (starred review)


    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.


    Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.


    But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.
