Summary

Teenager Bri wants to pursue her dream of being a rap star but her family troubles keep getting in the way

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 labelled "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.

NOTE: Contains strong language and drug references - no one really uses any but Bri's aunt earns her living as a drug dealer and is imprisoned by the end of the book

NOTE: Carnegie Shortlist 2020
NOTE : Shortlisted for the Children's Book Award 2020
