I was expecting an unreliable narrator in this book after reading We were Liars, but I did not expect the story to be told backwards. It was well done. The chapters run from chapter 18 down to chapter 1, but then there is a 19. It was a fun read that ...more

I did not like this as much as Kwame Alexander's other books. I think in Crossover and Booked, he was able to capture the rhythm of sports in the poems in the story. This one had music instead woven throughout the book, and I couldn't get any good mu ...more
