Look Both Ways by Jason Reynolds
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Jason Reynolds has crafted a unique tale with ten different stories that are independent but interconnected, just like the characters within them. When school lets out for the day, kids disperse, and through ten different lenses, readers are carried along with the flow of students rushing from the building and heading to their respective destinations. Each tale is distinctive in its voice and experiences, much like each person/student. Filled with humor, emotion, and reality - readers are in for a treat!
*Personal note - I almost didn't make it through the first story! I have a strong aversion to boogers (talking about them, seeing them, etc.) - and after a few gags (even while writing this review), I thankfully managed to make it through. 😆
