About the Author
Jason Reynolds is the author of several critically acclaimed books, including When I Was the Greatest, for which he was the recipient of the Coretta Scott King / John Steptoe Award for New Talent; the Coretta Scott King Honor books The Boy in the Black Suit and All American Boys, cowritten with Brendan Kiely; As Brave As You, his middle-grade debut; and National Book Award finalist Ghost, the first in a four-book series about kids on an elite track team.

Ghost was and still is my favorite character, and I wish the whole series was told from his perspective. I liked the little storyline with the coach and Lu's dad, although I felt it was resolved a little too easy.
I also wish there was a book told from the coach's perspective.
Lu and his family are THE CUTEST. So, this book opens with Lu finding out his mother is having a baby, and then becomes a great take about making mistakes and rising above terrible choices.
Reynolds ties out his amazing series with a very honest tale with some tough life lessons built-in. Addiction is a big part of this story, and I think it’s an important and relatable topic for middle grade literature. Our kids today are seeing and experiencing addiction in staggering numbers and we need to discuss the consequences and impacts of this disease more openly.
And what makes this book even better is we finally learn so much more about Coach. His childhood, his past, his philosophies, his family...
A great ending, bittersweet, yet satisfying.

Very interesting books - esp if you want your child to realise there are kids from different kinds of families and with very different lives and dreams.
