This month I read three books by Jason Reynolds. I chose him because he’s a newer author. I also tried to read his When I Was Greatest last fall when I was reading a ton of diverse books, but just didn’t get around to it. I had it out from the library, but other books got picked up instead and I finally returned it. I kept it on my radar, though, and when his newest novel came out, The Boy in the Black Suit I decided he would make a good monthly author. His books are amazing and I’m really glad I read them.
Schedule for the week:
Tuesday: The Boy in the Black Suit
Wednesday: When I Was Greatest
Thursday: My Name is Jason. Mine Too.
