Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner-city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn't show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, Colin Thatcher seems at first like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life.

This book took forever to get to a speedy conclusion. Nothing like Gone Girl as others had mentioned. Save yourself time by just reading the last three chapters...Thank me later

The old saying goes, "what happens in this house stays in this house".

Storyline was terrible and so was the narrator. Waste of my time and a credit.

Written in an urban vernacular that’s electrifying and intimate, On the Come Up introduces a heroine whose voice is irrepressible, dynamic, and unstintingly honest. Thirteen-year-old AnnMarie Walker dreams of a world beyond Far Rockaway, where the sway of the neighborhood keeps her tied to old ideas about success. While attending a school for pregnant teens, AnnMarie comes across a flyer advertising movie auditions in Manhattan. Astonishingly, improbably, and four months before she’s due to give birth - she lands a lead role.

Would you try another book from Hannah Weyer and/or Yolonda Ross?

Maybe

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The end left me hanging. The story builds it up just to lead to a unfinished ending. I found myself saying "That's it!?"

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Naw , I'll pass
