I adore Jason Reynolds!!! He definitely writes for older kids but there is so much he can teach adults!
I listened to this one and it revolves around a group of students and their stories of walking home from school!! 💜💜💜
The ending isn't quite what I'd hoped for, but overall, I very much enjoyed this book. It gives me the feeling of being dropped among a group of middle schoolers (in a good way). Reynolds captures well the insecurities, hopes, challenges, embarrassments, and close bonds of that age. It's an age I love now that I'm 30+ years away from being that age myself.
