Such an amazing book! Kwame Alexander is a very talented writer that can intertwine poetry, the complexities of family life, and can reach YA readers.
I teach 6th grade, and so many of my boys this year were obsessed with Kwame Alexander's books. They were asking each other to borrow the book after the current reader was done. For 11-12 year old boys to create their own waitlist for a book is a huge win!
