Published in 2015, this education title by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely has already received a 2016 Coretta Scott King Author Honor Award and was the recipient of the Walter Dean Myers Award for Outstanding Children’s Literature. This popular novel discusses important and universal themes like community, violence, race, and friendship.
It all begins with something simple – a routine trip to the corner bodega. Sixteen-year-old Rashad is there to pick up a bag of chips. However he isn’t expecting to meet cop Paul Galluzzo there. And he certainly isn’t expecting to be mistaken for a shoplifter. Yet, that’s what happens. It all unravels until Rashad is being pounded into the pavement for something he had nothing to do with. Luckily, people were there to see it all go down. But as it turns out, Paul’s adopted son Quinn Collins was there to film the whole thing. Now the community is enraged by what appears to be racial profiling and Quinn is caught in between it all – a classmate who was wrongly beaten and a father-figure he’s come to trust. What unfolds is a thoughtful and relevant story about two young men faced with important issues they’ve yet to face.
With its political, racial and social themes, this title is recommended for readers at least 12 years old or with a middle school or higher reading level.
