Bookseller Recommendation

Look Both Ways

“While adults may discount the heavy emotions of middle school, Jason Reynolds has captured all the real life that is young emerging adulthood in his new middle grade book LOOK BOTH WAYS. These middle school children are dealing with the same adversities that hit grown folks but without all the tools adults have and they’re doing alright. This book is insightful, brilliant, heart-breaking and an especially good audiobook from Libro.fm that would be a great family listen.”

“As innovative as it is emotionally arresting.” —Entertainment Weekly

From National Book Award finalist and #1 New York Times bestselling author Jason Reynolds comes a novel told in ten blocks, showing all the different directions kids walks home can take.

This story was going to begin like all the best stories. With a school bus falling from the sky. But no one saw it happen. They were all too busy—

Talking about boogers.
Stealing pocket change.
Skateboarding.
Wiping out.
Braving up.
Executing complicated handshakes.
Planning an escape.
Making jokes.
Lotioning up.
Finding comfort.
But mostly, too busy walking home.

Jason Reynolds conjures ten tales (one per block) about what happens after the dismissal bell rings, and brilliantly weaves them into one wickedly funny, piercingly poignant look at the detours we face on the walk home, and in life.
