The highly anticipated second novel by Angie Thomas, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling, award-winning The Hate U Give. An homage to hip hop, the art that sparked her passion for storytelling, and fighting for your dreams, On The Come Up is brilliant, insightful, full of heart, and another modern classic from one of the most influential literary voices of a generation.
In a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by war, humans are on the brink of extinction and the key to survival rests in the hands of one 16 year-old girl. Humanity is all but extinguished after a war with partials--engineered organic beings identical to humans--has decimated the world's population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island. The threat of the partials is still imminent, but, worse, no baby has been born immune to the disease in over a decade. Humanity's time is running out. When sixteen-year-old Kira learns of her best friend's pregnancy, she's determined to find a solution. Then one rash decision forces Kira to flee her community with the unlikeliest of allies. As she tries desperately to save what is left of her race, she discovers that the survival of both humans and partials rests in her attempts to answer questions of the war's origin that she never knew to ask. Combining the fast-paced action of The Hunger Games with the provocative themes of Battlestar Galactica, Partials is a pulse-pounding journey into a world where the very concept of what it means to be human is in question--one where our sense of humanity is both our greatest liability, and our only hope for survival.
