As Brave As You
Kirkus Award Finalist Schneider Family Book Award Winner Coretta Scott King Author Honor Book In this “pitch-perfect contemporary novel” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review), Coretta Scott King – John Steptoe Award-winning author Jason Reynolds explores multigenerational ideas about family love and bravery in the story of two brothers, their blind grandfather, and a dangerous rite of passage. Genie’s summer is full of surprises. The first is that he and his big brother, Ernie, are leaving Brooklyn for the very first time to spend the summer with their grandparents all the way in Virginia—in the COUNTRY! The second surprise comes when Genie figures out that their grandfather is blind. Thunderstruck, Genie peppers Grandpop with questions about how he hides it so well (besides wearing way cool Ray-Bans). How does he match his clothes? Know where to walk? Cook with a gas stove? Pour a glass of sweet tea without spilling it? Genie thinks Grandpop must be the bravest guy he’s ever known, but he starts to notice that his grandfather never leaves the house—as in NEVER. And when he finds the secret room that Grandpop is always disappearing into—a room so full of songbirds and plants that it’s almost as if it’s been pulled inside-out—he begins to wonder if his grandfather is really so brave after all. Then Ernie lets him down in the bravery department. It’s his fourteenth birthday, and, Grandpop says to become a man, you have to learn how to shoot a gun. Genie thinks that is AWESOME until he realizes Ernie has no interest in learning how to shoot. None. Nada. Dumbfounded by Ernie’s reluctance, Genie is left to wonder—is bravery and becoming a man only about proving something, or is it just as important to own up to what you won’t do?

The Boy in the Black Suit

release date: Jul 30, 2019
The Boy in the Black Suit
Matt wears a black suit every day. No, not because his mom died - although she did, and it sucks. But he wears the suit for his gig at the local funeral home, which pays way better than the Cluck Bucket, and he needs the income since his dad can't handle the bills (or anything, really) on his own. So while Dad's snagging bottles of whiskey, Matt's snagging fifteen bucks an hour. Not bad. But everything else? Not good. Then Matt meets Lovey. Crazy name, and she's been through more crazy stuff than he can imagine. Yet Lovey never cries. She's tough. Really tough. Tough in the way Matt wishes he could be. Which is maybe why he's drawn to her, and definitely why he can't seem to shake her. Because there's nothing more hopeful than finding a person who understands your loneliness - and who can maybe even help take it away.

When I Was the Greatest

When I Was the Greatest
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jason Reynolds, a “funny and rewarding” (Publishers Weekly) coming-of-age novel about friendship and loyalty across neighborhood lines and the hardship of life for an urban teen. A lot of the stuff that gives my neighborhood a bad name, I don’t really mess with. The guns and drugs and all that, not really my thing. Nah, not his thing. Ali’s got enough going on, between school and boxing and helping out at home. His best friend Noodles, though. Now there’s a dude looking for trouble—and, somehow, it’s always Ali around to pick up the pieces. But, hey, a guy’s gotta look out for his boys, right? Besides, it’s all small potatoes; it’s not like anyone’s getting hurt. And then there’s Needles. Needles is Noodles’s brother. He’s got a syndrome, and gets these ticks and blurts out the wildest, craziest things. It’s cool, though: everyone on their street knows he doesn’t mean anything by it. Yeah, it’s cool…until Ali and Noodles and Needles find themselves somewhere they never expected to be…somewhere they never should've been—where the people aren’t so friendly, and even less forgiving.

Harvey and Me

release date: Mar 09, 2017
Harvey and Me
"Watching the chap being led away, his large rucksack being carried by one of his burly escorts, it dawned on me that I was witnessing someone who had forsaken all of his worldly goods and possessions, voluntarily or otherwise, and attempted to better his situation by whatever means necessary, potentially knowing that, at any point on his journey, the whole thing would be thwarted and it would be a total waste of time, effort and money. I, on the other hand, had voluntarily given up most of my material possessions for some frivolous exercise in frippery; or that's what it genuinely felt like at that very moment. The dichotomy of two people, separated by a distance of a few feet and a quirk of birth and fate, could not have been more potently or starkly felt right then".What exactly is a mid-life crisis and how do you know if you have one ? This question was the driving force behind an adventure which started with selling a house and quickly progressed to landing in Portugal to begin travelling in a way that few get to experience.Jason Reynolds was a 45-year-old high-flying BBC executive in a good but unfulfilling job when he decided to throw it all in: the job, the house, the security, the routine. What took place was an adventure around Western Europe of hilarious and baffling proportions. This is the first instalment of that adventure, taking in many countries and many characters and described in a fun, irreverent and pacey way that will have you page-turning quicker than you expected.Veering between curmudgeonly, dry, wry and endlessly fascinated, Reynolds takes the reader with him on the journey in such detail that it feels as if you're his co-pilot. It might even make you want to book a trip you weren't expecting !Hop on and enjoy the ride.
