Product description

Review

"This book is a must-have in every collection for its variety of topics and its celebration of Black boyhood in all its forms."—School Library Journal, starred review

"In a world where Black boys' stories are often tragedies, statistics, and stereotypes, this work surely reclaims ownership over the boldness, creativity, and wholeness they possess." —Booklist, starred review

Some are humorous, some are poignant, but all are compelling reading... A unique, timely, and necessary read.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“A book that in addition to celebrating joy reminds readers that getting excited and caring—about people, about stuff—is cool and rewarding.” —The Bulletin

"Mbalia and the other authors tell the stories of young Black men with such vivid, expansive descriptions that all readers can experience the joy that radiates through the pages of this book."—Shelf Awareness
