's review

really liked it

a fast read (only took about an hour to get through) but still very powerful and impactful. jason reynolds has a way with words, and the free-verse format really suits his talents. i haven't read a ton of books in verse, but this is by far my favorite--the word choice, the imagery, the message, the emotional punch--it was all so good. the ending was a little abrupt, but i think it works for the story, and that bit of ambiguity can open up some really interesting discussions. definitely looking forward to reading more by reynolds!

it's written in verse, so most pages have very few words! (the audiobook is only 1 hr 43 minutes for comparison, so i'm not THAT fast of a reader, it's just a fast book) XD
