I read this book by Jason Reynolds so quickly, I actually forgot I had read it. I was first made aware of its existence (and its awesomeness) via Twitter, where a bunch of people I follow were raving about it. I spent the last week of 2017 furiously reading short books to try to finish my Goodreads goal (which I did manage to complete with just 3.5 hours to go!) so this was one I grabbed because I knew I’d be able to blow through it in an hour or two.
It’s a novel written in verse about a young black boy, Will, who is 15 years old when his brother is shot and killed. Although he was at the scene when it happened, Will didn’t get a clear look at the shooter, but he’s convinced he knows who did it.
