Ten interconnected chapters told as one story of a group of middle school students as they deal with real world problems in their everyday lives. Jason Reynolds uses realistic dialogue and unique descriptions to bring the characters and their stories to life. Lyrical language makes for some interesting reading interwoven into stories about life from cancer to overcoming a fear of dogs. Overall, a very enjoyable read. 4 1/2 stars. ( )

One day, on this particular day, school lets out. Kids walk home from school. This book is a collection of ten stories, each about what happens to a different little cluster of kids on their walk home from school on this particular day. There are little hints of interweaving, and inter-contentedness between them, though they are largely independent tales. Some a little funny, some a little sweet, some a little sad; all ten, excellent. Jason Reynolds is a master storyteller. ( )

Beautiful language and realistic and relatable characters. But nothing life-changing, mind-blowing, or thought-inspiring. ( )

A group of middle school students face many challenges on their walk home from school. Many issues are touched upon, including bullying, domestic violence, mental illness, homelessness, anxiety, death, stealing and foster care.
