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.

Mr. R. Bartram
This is not a book for youger kids IMOReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 15 August 2022
I really dont like this book . I have read three " Blocks ( chapters ) " . The characters are violent/victims of violence , traumatised, messed up , hustlers etc..... Cant children be children at least for a while . Do I want my 9 yo reading "snitches get stitches or sometimes ditches" . No. I do not. I appreciate authors make up worlds and maybe this world has some basis in reality for some but it is not a nice world to visit. Lastly, language. Stream of consiousness/jive was great when I was a teenager reading On the Road . A bit tricky when as a white middle class parent I am reading to my kids and keep "auto correcting" the protaganists grammar. Donny Hathaway . Legend. This book not so much .
TraumaticReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 22 May 2022
Please think carefully before buying this book for your children. It is a difficult read even for a resilient adult! Each chapter faces new traumas. While it is a reality for sadly a lot of children, this book is also aimed at children, who are already likely struggling to articulate what they are going through. Books like this don’t always help articulate, they may in fact be re-traumatising.
Great book!Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 28 February 2020
I bought it for my 9 year old son, who has really enjoyed it! Jason Reynolds has a great gift of reaching out to the youth.
Good class read aloudReviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on 2 May 2021
I'm reading this book to my class and they are making some great connections to the stories happening in each block.
Unique voiceReviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on 10 November 2019
I love Jason Reynolds’ voice. It draws me in and his stories are told in such unique ways. There are always metaphors to explore!
