5.0 out of 5 stars A fun, often profound, and affirming cultural romp
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on January 7, 2023
I would probably buy anything that Jason Reynolds is involved in, but along the way I discovered some really great writing and storytelling from authors I had never heard of. My 13yr old son really enjoyed this book. A lot of it is authentically colloquial and dialectic, so I found that me reading it aloud was best to keep the messages intact, and make it so that my kid could understand what was going on. This made for fantastic bedtime storytelling.

I am excited to gift this book to my son however I will have to first remove a sticky residue from both the front and the back of the dust jacket. I thought I was buying something new but perhaps not. Either way I am disappointed with the condition of the dust jacket.

The one star was for the condition of the dust jacket. Otherwise this book is an AMAZING collection of stories!
