9781416979630: The World Is Mine (The Come Up)

Blue Reynolds has it all: money, brains, style, charisma, and the hunger to be more than what his parents have planned for him. He's a dreamer on a mission to become the world's next music business mogul. But for now he'll settle for being the youngest, hottest party promoter around...and the man on the arm of the fly and sassy Jade Taylor.

Collin Andrews is Blue's best friend, and the order to Blue's madness. Blue dreams up the ideas and Collin figures out how to make them happen; together, they make a powerhouse team that's ready to blow the roof off the music game!

Coming up is never easy. These two dreamers will have to put everything on the line and do whatever it takes to succeed. It's the new American dream, and the sky's the limit. All they need is one shot.

About the Author:

Lyah B LeFlore is the author of Last Night A DJ Saved My Life an adult novel, I Got Your Back a non-fiction collaboration with Eddie and Gerald Levert, and is the coauthor of Cosmopolitan Girls a teen novel. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri.

From Booklist:

The worlds of rap, DJing, and moguling (if that’s a word) are given homage in this propulsive story about choosing your own dreams. Six protagonists crowd the plot, but at the center is D.C. high-schooler Blue. “What twenty-first-century teenager do you know who doesn’t want to be famous?” he asks, and the assertion is proven repeatedly via alternating narrators. Blue wants to launch an “entertainment brand”; his buddy Collin wants to be Blue’s business partner even as his father forbids it; their first client Tre boasts, “I am Nas, Talib, Pac, Snoop, Biggie, Jay, Kanye, and Weezy”; Whiteboy is their artist collaborator trying to escape ghetto violence; Jade is Blue’s tempestuous maybe-girlfriend; and Mamie is the DJ whose track is so fly that Blue steals it to back up Tre’s first hit. The constant texting and trash talk flow with an irresistible energy, popping with slang like “lace the cypher.” The Come Up series has nailed a strong opener; let’s see if the merciless cliffhanger pays off. Grades 7-10. --Daniel Kraus
